MADE IN AMERICA received tremendous accolades and awards including winning Best Solo Show at Hollywood Fringe Festival 2022. Off-Broadway debut at Soho Playhouse in New York City. Japanese-born artist Teruko Nakajima's original solo show is a funny yet shockingly raw autobiography. It's a story for women, Asians, first-generation immigrants and anyone who is fighting to make their dreams come true. Teruko's show shines a necessary light on the tragedies of domestic violence, mental health, child abuse, sexual assault and suicide. But ultimately provides inspiration to anyone who suffers and needs help. Her dog Titi performs too.
