Nick Koesters, Barter player, will be performing his one-man show "Side Effects May Include" on January 8, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum. This is a free performance, but donations will be accepted for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The play is sponsored by a partnership between Arts Alliance Mountain Empire and the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.

This one-man play, co-written by author and stand-up comedian Marc Jaffe and Broadway playwright Eric Coble, is based on Jaffe's real life experiences with his wife Karen, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2007. It is the story of how Parkinson's affected their lives, the choices they made in dealing with the disease, and the literal and figurative side effects of those choices. Since Karen's diagnosis, the Jaffes have raised over one million dollars for the Michael J. Fox Foundation through their nonprofit organization Shaking With Laughter. All proceeds raised from this event will go to Shaking With Laughter to help fund support and research for a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
