Herpes: A Love Story is a multimedia extravaganza that features voice overs, musical parodies, audience interaction and at least one dance fueled by clouds of “cocaine.” It's a unique survival story that confronts a subject that's relatable to anyone who is, has been, or might be sexually active…but plays out in a loud, energetic cavalcade of sex, self-discovery and inspiration. Think The Vagina Monologue meets Point Break Live. Though somewhat raunchy and, at times, “raw as hell,” it respects the boundaries of good taste while helping to educate as well as remove some of the stigma that goes along with this particular disease. In the end, this festive and bold solo show preaches self-love and responsibility and respect to yourself and others. According to Pascual, “I make herpes fun.”

Cherise is a powerhouse of energy and creativity! She owns the space from the first moment she walks on stage and keeps the audience on the edge of their seats, hungry for her next word. She is funny and intelligent and lights up the room with a mega-watt smile. Her bravery and honesty are breathtaking and she is fearless in her ability to face difficult realities and share them with us in an unapologetic way.
