After 21 years as an honorary Jewish person and 10+ years as a neurotic New Yorker, Woody Fu discovered he is Asian and has emotions. Join him on this special night as he finally becomes a man. L'Chaim!
Asian Gracefully is a one-man show about growing up not white, tackling such delightful topics as internecine racism, how Asian men don't exist in porn, and why Koreans put an egg on all their food. It's gone up at the UCB, PIT, and Magnet in New York, and toured nationally.
Woody is a comedic actor-writer, and has performed with Baby Wants Candy and at Boom Chicago in Amsterdam.
An aspiring actress stands on the 50 foot H, looking out at the lights of Los Angeles and the Dream Factory known as Hollywood. It is 1949: Truman is President, Marilyn Monroe is a little known model who poses nude for an art calendar in order to recover her impounded car, and nobody has ever heard of Evie Edwards...
Charting over 30 years of the Golden Age of Hollywood, including stories from the Silent Era, the Great Depression and World War II, this solo show takes audiences on a nostalgic journey – with a different perspective. The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign includes songs composed for cinema's greatest stars - Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow and more. Joanne Hartstone is Evie Edwards - the girl who has only ever wanted one thing: to be a star.
In A Kind Shot, a 6'1" blonde spitfire, Terri Mateer, tells her life story of becoming a pro basketball player in France. Raised by a single hippie mom, an African-American surrogate father stepped in and taught her how to play the game. Being 6'1" in the sixth grade, she's a natural, but dreams of becoming an architect. Terri's unbelievable journey includes playing pro ball, modeling, stripping, designing erotica, and taking lots of shots at life. It's an uplifting, honest, no-holds-barred personal account that illustrates we all need a little bit of kindness.
The Last Sicilian is an evening of true stories from actor-writer Nick Albanese: stories about his childhood years spent in his family's bakery, how generations of his relatives met, married, and overcame much to come to America. Albanese acts out all the characters and the audience is treated to some winning stories that have been passed down over raucous family dinner tables for year after year. There's some Sicilian history and the negative perception of Italian immigrants in America when they first came to the States and then switches back to the family stories. You'll learn a little history, get a bit emotional, and definitely have tons of laughs as Nick tells his funny and heartwarming tales of growing up Sicilian in America. You don't have to be Sicilian to appreciate this story of an amazing journey that spans a century, from the immigrants' arrival in the New World, all the way to modern pop culture.
