WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Stephanie Satie makes a triumphant return to the United Solo Festival with Coming to America, a stirring portrait gallery of women whose lives have been transformed, first by extraordinary events in their country of birth, then by their response to America.
Under the direction of Anita Khanzadian, Satie embodies women from diverse countries and ordeals: "nine fascinating women, each character so distinctive you forget it's the same actor" (Los Angeles Loyolan). The engrossing work returning to United Solo for one night only "…conveys the universal longing to break out of repression…[and] leaves an indelible impression" (Tolucan Times).
Opening before the Jewish High Holidays, Ms. Satie hopes to secure a second performance from which a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a woman's charity.
