In Show Up, award-winning solo show performer Peter Michael Marino (Desperately Seeking the Exit, Late With Lance!) uses his decades of solo performance expertise to turn the often vilified clichés of the genre on their clichéd heads. Exploiting an arsenal of Post-it Notes, Marino compiles and transforms the challenging and enlightening real-life audience experiences into a single vibrant life story that is daring and unique each time. Chance elements are increased as audience members are engaged to direct and design the set and sound. Show Up provides a wild, unpredictable ride for the audience as Marino navigates this high wire, simultaneously commenting on social anxiety, depression, and performance challenges. And there’s a party!
