“It blew me away... I was thrilled to experience a Chinese American artist’s work--something all-too rare in the theatre and I was greatly immersed in the trippy, surreal ambiance.... Every actor in the show had necessary moments of reality and intricate emotion with musical stylings reminiscent of the 1990s: Her (played by writer-composer Rebecca Lee Lerman, who originated the role in its concert and reading versions last year) reminded me of Alanis Morissette with a twinge of Lady Gaga: a raving compliment, trust me. This will definitely be a show that sticks with me.” -Destiny Whitaker Chatham Life and Style Magazine

Synoposis:

A comatose, mixed-race Chinese American woman, dreams. Her body has become a hotel. She must navigate each room of her body, each room of her trauma, in order to heal. Toilets are broken and overflow. Pools freeze over and it starts to snow. Penises become snakes. Sometimes, she turns into a rock star. We heal by being seen, but adding the layer of social media, how do we form authentic ties in a society that makes it difficult to connect? This is one character's journey back to loving herself by seeking validation within.
