WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Manigma depicts six distinct characters--all performed by Michael Aronov: "Chacha" - the saucy and resilient cabaret performer embracing her nasty past; "Sasha" - the beefy old-world immigrant hungry for a companion; "Frick" - the introverted penny collector who misses his mom; "T" - the thug from the streets who demands a revolt; "Pinchy" - the vulnerable self-helper hunting for courage; and "Rick" - the uninhibited wild man who urges us to abandon and live. These troubled opposites represent extrapolated versions of the actor's own personality. The show highlights the inner conflict of these disparities and then embraces them, celebrating the complexities that make us unique.
