It is what it is
MY ONE MAN SHOW....
about life with disabilities. But, really, about life. I was inspired by Billy Crystal's show 700 Sundays. I thought: Wow, he’s such a famous guy and yet he told a story everyone could relate to. Maybe I should write a story about myself, another person with a bit of a unique life, and see if I could make it something everyone could relate to.
I was thrilled when It Is What It Is won first prize at NYC's One Festival, which resulted in a five-night run Off-Off Broadway. I worked with my co-writer and director, Christopher Hanke, and had a successful run, with nearly 500 attendees, ending with a benefit for my theater group, Creative Arts Team.
