LTV is East Hampton's non-profit local access television station and its highly anticipated Creative Salon Night is returning on Friday, May 3. Every Salon does it differently, but the common denominator is the undeniable creativity, talent, ideas, and sharing amongst the local audience. Everyone will unite at Studio 3 from 6:45 to 9 p.m. for an evening of creativity.

"Well, if three's a charm then you are in for a treat with our third Creative Salon Night at LTV on Friday May 3rd (another '3') …. We are so encouraged that the Salon's nights at LTV are catching on and people are coming to them, and talking about them!" remarked Angela LaGreca, LTV's Creative Director.

Joy Behar is back with a short comedic play she wrote about an Italian family in upstate New York. Patrick Christiano, host of "Spotlight on the Art" on LTV, comedian Linda Smith, actress Karen Saunders and a possible surprise guest will read for Joy this evening. It will be a talent-packed event. Joy will also be reading in some scenes from a TV pilot co-written by Angela LaGreca, LTV's Creative Director. It's called Gay in Greenwich about two gay divorced moms trying to "do the blend" and live together with their four kids in Greenwich. Actress Irene Glezos of East Hampton and Springs writer Kathleen Cohian will take the stage to read.

During the last Creative Salon Night, Comedian Bill McCuddy of Bridgehampton had people crying with laughter and he is back! He's ready to tryout some "new Hamptons material." Veteran standup comedian, writer and comedy coach Linda Smith will be on hand to tell jokes, and read in some scenes, and character comedian Cristina Cote of Water Mill and NYC will appear as "Melania Trump" and "Svetty in the City."

The music will not disappoint either! Acclaimed singer/songwriter Alfredo Merat, who did his Jacques Brel show at Bay Street last year, will serenade the LTV crowd. Additionally, the talented vocal powerhouse Karen Saunders, a longtime resident of Bellmore and an acclaimed cabaret and jazz singer, is back to wow the audience. Plus Julie Bluestone of Springs who frequently performs locally and in Manhattan, will be on sax again. Lenny Babbish, the ever-constant and talented musical director, will be at the piano.

Italian performing artist Fabiana Yvonne Lugli has a fascinating multi-media art form 'SignofSound involving music, dance, paint and video art, and improvisation. She has an art studio/space in East Hampton in collaboration with Eisner Design in the Northwest Woods. Celebrity facialist and East Hampton resident Thuyen Nguyen who has touched every A-list actress and supermodel's face will be interviewed as well! They will be talking all about what is hot in the Hamptons this upcoming summer season.

Tickets are $20 to benefit LTV, the East End's premiere public access television station and media center.

LTV's Creative Salon Night is located at 75 Industrial Road, Wainscott. For more information or to reserve tickets, call 631-537-2777 x10 or visit www.ltveh.org.
