Background on Laura and Her Show
Laura Lapointe served in the Boston corps at the David A. Ellis Elementary School on the MFS Investment team. Fired up about service, she set out to use her idealistic tools and make a difference but was disappointed to find that the rest of the world is nothing like the uniquely warm, inspiring and exhilarating City Year community. After years of walking in many different boots, she finally found an excuse to don her well-worn Timbs, along with several other styles, in developing her one woman show, "What Color Are Your Work Boots?"

Join Laura on a poignant, earnest, playful artistic exploration of how there may be a lot more to finding good work than finding a good job. Anyone who has ever been unemployed, under-employed or unhappily employed (or anyone contemplating LACY) will relate to familiar moments that reveal how amazing it is that any of us actually negotiate and/or succeed within this sometimes ridiculous process called a career.

From the pangs of perceived inadequacy to the promise of hard-won perspective, Laura exposes the inner experiences of one in the job search trenches. You just might leave feeling refreshed and ready to put on your own work boots and set out on your unique purposeful path, regardless of what your job is or isn’t.

Laura holds a BFA in Acting from NYU, a Master of Divinity, and several other items and experiences of dubious meaning and worth. In one year she went on 40 job interviews and ended up working in a prison.
