FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Los Angeles, CA (November 12th, 2016) — Extreme Interventionist and star of A&E’s Extractors, Evan “Bullet” James, is returning to the East Coast for the critically acclaimed “Midlife Gangster: Redemption Song – The Life and Times of Bullet James,” a one-man show dramatizing his chaotic journey from almost dying of a cocaine overdose in a gas station bathroom to redemption with a purpose. “Midlife Gangster” will be coming to The Flight Theater for one performance on November 12th at 3pm.
“Midlife Gangster” examines the life of a man now known to be a pioneer in the drug and alcohol intervention world. Mr. Evan “Bullet” James is the inventor of the Extreme Intervention Model, a category of intervention meant for individuals in extremely dangerous situations. In the past 23 years, Bullet has sustained over 1,214 successful interventions and has saved countless lives. His work was recently captured by A&E for the docu-series “Extractors.”
“Bullet” narrates and dramatizes his turbulent, insane, hilarious, heart wrenching journey from a broken home to star athlete to being enticed to run with street gangs….all of which led to a life of wasted potential, drug addiction, jails, institutions, homelessness and eventually trying to commit suicide on a rainy fall night in 1987.
Midlife Gangster serves as the prequel to how Bullet became “The Extractor,” and captures the true devastation of addiction. Bullet gives a performance of epic proportions, and delivers a “life transforming show.” Says LA Splash Magazine.
All proceeds will be donated to Teen Adolescent Placements Services. Since 1995 T.A.P.S., a non profit organization, has been assisting families in crises with drug addicted teens and young adults. taps14.org
