  Brennen Reeves just wanted to be normal. The only problem: the fatal lung disease, Cystic Fibrosis. The only solution: a double lung transplant. Reeves has turned his story into a one-person play called Breathe, and it is playing as part of Piccolo Spoleto's Stelle di Domani (stars of tomorrow) Series. Reeves and co-creator David Lee Nelson talk about bringing such a serious subject to the stage in a play that is often quite funny.
