Canceled/Postponed - Tales of Modern Motherhood: Part 2 Gender and Identity This sh*t just TRANS…formed

This show has stuck with me, days later. I keep coming back to one word: generous. Pam is generous with her story, in sharing such a personal journey. She is generous with her heart, wearing it on her sleeve and allowing us to see some of her most vulnerable moments. She is generous with her energy, pushing the story forward with vibrance and a masterful ability to say so much in so little time. And she is generous as a mother, keeping an open heart and mind and bringing the audience into this story without judgement. What an incredible way to honor her son. I am so moved.

Enerjoyce...Evolution of a Pisces Baby Boomer

Joyce Fiddler is an energetic, insightful and charming storyteller. Her ability to stand outside of herself and her story, to see her past from a different angle, created a script that is strikingly honest and immediately relateable. She has an incredible humor about herself that draws you in, but never asks for pity. It was a refreshing journey through 7 decades of American life and a beautiful story of redemption.

Too Old, Too Asian, Too Short

Pamela is adorable and her energy and kindness radiates from her - and it is infectious. She tackles darker subjects in a way that doesn't overburden her audience and always has a hint of triumph in it. I left feeling uplifted, inspired and just plain happy to know that people like her follow their dreams no matter the odds.

Mormon Playgirl

I enjoyed getting to see the journey of CC Sheffield through the eyes of so many characters, some of which I had a lot of familiarity with. The agent character spoke words I heard far too many times and seeing Harvey Weinstein through her lens gave me a fresh perspective on the stories behind some of the latest headlines.

Shiva For Anne Frank

Bold and brave, this is a fresh look at an iconic girl that we only think we know and the woman who has put herself out on a limb to bring us that story. Rachel explores more than a few taboo topics by throwing herself with abandon into comedy, but also owning the weight of atrocities that have both been passed down through generations and also ones that represent history repeating itself.

ORANGUTAN

This show was moving and absurd, hilarious and terrifying - all in the way that only really good, challenging art can be. It was a bold look at the state of politics in a way that felt fresh, yet primal. I was grateful for the reminder of where the instincts to protect our own comes from and how it plays out in the world today.

Chrissy Meth ~ A Dance with the Devil and a Journey Back to Self

To see drug addiction portrayed in this way is really unusual – and important. We see the innocence, the intrigue, the various elements that lead to drug abuse. So often, the thrill and intoxication of drug use is either celebrated or brushed under the rug. This story pulls no punches on both that – and also the helplessness and spiral of addiction. …but, ultimately, the journey to self love and recovery – in a way that is unique and moving.

(IM)PERFEKT

This show was thoughtful, clever, educational without preaching, extremely brave and moving – but also managed to be entirely uplifting. I didn’t just get to learn more about Jannica, I learned about myself. She turns the mirror on to the audience and challenges us to look at our labels and assumptions. And I left inspired by her journey, which she masterfully made about broader themes of image and self-love.

Cave Girl the Musical

This show was heart-wrenching and hilarious, bold and brave, unique and playful. Glennis laid her heart on the stage and held nothing back. The show was deeply felt and cleverly realized. Unafraid to face her truest self, Glennis inspired and moved me.

CORINA, From Lap Dance to Sundance

Corina is a FORCE. She came out of the gate with energy and passion and kept up the intensity throughout. Her drive was infectious, her story is redemptive and her honesty took my breath away. At the end, she addresses briefly WHY she decided to tell this story, for herself but also to inspire others to reach for their dreams and to see beyond the limitations of the situation they were born into – and it felt genuine. She so clearly wanted to reach people with this story – and we all left uplifted and inspired. Her intention was absolutely fulfilled.

FERTILE: On stage via LIVESTREAM! (Hollywood)

Heather is an incredible solo performer. You know instantly that you are in good hands with her. Her character’s specificity and ability to choose just the right amount of just the right words to tell the story is truly a gift. The show is sneakily educational, hiding facts in clever dialogue, but also clearly painting the full picture of society’s judgment and opinions. It was witty and relatable – and masterfully tackles a topic that is inexplicably taboo with true grace.

Temple Tantrum

The show was everything the good solo theater should be. Entertaining, honest, educational, emotional …a real journey. Masterfully directed and beautifully acted, it would be impossible not to fall in love with Nicole, even as she struggles to fall in love with her self. It was a ride that I didn’t want to get off of and got to such a place of honesty that The themes really came through and felt universal

Bunny the Elf LIVE!

This show delivers on everything you would want in a holiday story …and I so appreciated getting all those warm fuzzy feelings off-season. It was fun and optimistic. Christi’s sincerity and enthusiasm shines through this character and it would be impossible not to fall in love with her. Despite there being an overall cheery sheen, the writer does not shy away from bigger themes such as sexual harassment and the age-old Christmas lesson of gratitude.

Batter Up: My Brain on Baseball

There’s nothing “stupid” about what Brett professes to be his “stupid human trick.” It’s insanely impressive to watch his mind work and his enthusiasm for baseball was infectious.

Mandy Picks A Husband

This show is smart and quick and led us down a path that I found to be incredibly brave – and also surprising. It so brilliantly moves from broad, big, safer concepts into more intimate, raw and personal memories meticulously, peeling back time and layers of understanding- always digging deeper and revealing more as she went. The structure was impeccable and it was so brilliantly executed, with specificity of movement and polish. And that polish does not get in the way of her vulnerability and authenticity – what a talent!

Saving Cain

This show dealt with overlapping issues of addiction and religion in a fresh way, taking some surprising turns. I particularly appreciated moments where characters made decisions we didn’t expect and that the arc of these decisions bent toward justice.

Walking on Eggshells in Stilettos

This show really hits home near the end, drawing it out from the darkness her personal struggles and into the light of the reality of just how common and insidious mental illness is. A brave and honest look at not only her family, but herself, it was really special to see Anne-Marie emerge victorious. The show felt extremely personal and intimate.

A Bit Much

Intelligently written, the play winds it’s way through awkward dates and mixed signals to land some very real punches of truth and self discovery. She uncovers many layers of being “too much” and bravely turns her judgment to herself in a moment I won’t soon forget, as she realizes that she must challenge herself to accept others in the way she wants to be accepted. Beautiful.
