Description

Mary Jo's boyfriend hijacks a workshop of her critically acclaimed one-woman show, Born MYdentity. This musical comedy features fantastical appearances by Tori Amos, Janis Joplin, Jon Secada and many more! But can MJ's show survive an assault from reality? #MineToo exposes the struggle between ownership and partnership, creating and appropriating, and the truth behind the stories we tell ourselves.

I saw two shows at either end of this evening and I'm here to tell you they were The Real Thing. "#MineToo "seems likes it's going to be one thing and then it changes on you completely. Up Her Sleeve starts off as a lovely diary and ends up as a manifesto. Both shows feature two very different but equally intrepid and very nearly glowing perfomers, Mary Jo Verruto and Esme Michaela Weiler-Grove respectively.
Look- there are a lot of us solo performers here, especially those who identify as cis gendered women. You might find yourself quietly thinking- seen one, seen them all. In the case of these two shows- no. No no no. Mary Jo sings and tells stories and then opens up the entire genre to get at what she really wants to tell us. Esme Michaela Weiler-Grove brings us into the bedroom of a young woman at different points of her life trying to understand her reproductive health and being continually let down by the culture that only seems to care about her because she can (or can't) reproduce. Her carefree charm matures over the course of the show and becomes a steely center.
I was rooting for both women- first as performers because I had the pleasure of meeting them through the happy greenside family. But I rooted even harder for their characters. I know this shouldn't matter, but I found it notable that both women are luminously beautiful while they are performing. They must be doing something they really love, and want to share it with us. Please see their shows.
