Kim Wayans faces her fears

Kim Wayans-headshotKim Wayans, once one of the very funny cast members on In Living Color with brothers Keenen Ivory Wayans, Damon Wayans, Shawn Wayans and Msarlon Wayans, had a not-so-amusing problem in real life: panic attacks.

The actress and comedienne enrolled in a retreat to seek solutions, and though she experienced anxiety as she dealt with her problem, she left with more than she anticipated -- mainly, the material for her one-woman show A Handsome Woman Retreats.

Wayans will be at the Miramar Cultural Center ArtsPark at 8 p.m. Friday for one performance of her solo show, with tickets priced at just $20.  The venue is at 2400 Civic Center Place on Red Road north of Miramar Parkway.  For info, call 954-602-4500 or visit the center's web site.
