You could say performing is in Anita Hollander's blood. After all, she's been singing, dancing and acting since she was 8. When she was 26, she lost her leg to cancer, but she kept on going.
"I went on with my career just normally as a performer who just happened to have an artificial leg,"Hollander said. "And somehow I got introduced to a whole world of other performers who have disabilities and they sort of pushed me ahead." She's now National Co-Chair of Performers with Disabilities for SAG-AFTRA. And in that capacity, works to promote more "presence of performers with disabilities in all media, including stage, television, film."
And Tuesday night at 7, Hollander brings her show, "Still Standing: A Musical Survival Guide for Life's Catastrophes" to USF's Oval Theater in Tampa, presented by VSA Florida and USF AccessiBull.
