“Tapping my Way To The Nuthouse” is one of the most gorgeous solo shows I have had the pleasure of seeing. The best solo shows are always the most simple, the most effortless and the most intensely and utterly the property of the performer. This play is definitively “Lynne Jassem” and a gift to us all. Bravo!

Jassem is an accomplished tap dancer and mime artist, and she uses these techniques to tell her story. While her dance steps are generally not overly complicated, they are effective in conveying mood, the passage of time, and so on. The mime could be a little tighter, and although we get the feeling of her hopelessness at being trapped, her confinement changed shape from time to time.

Lynne Jassem, a tiny, diminutive but feisty woman, tells and taps out the story of her life as a child performer, overly-smothered and pushed relentlessly by a stage-mom, who was once a Rockette, that led her into much turmoil in her following years. She re-enacts her childhood dance classes, portraying both herself as a scared little girl and all of the elders she comes in contact with, the first being her dance teacher, Charlie, who has a gruff voice while spouting commands at her to perform overtly, which upsets her greatly, crying, singing, tap dancing and shaking her way through "Sweet Little Alice Blue Gown," as her mother watches critically from the corner.
