Save the Date: New York City!


Save the Date!
Award-Winning One Woman Show coming to NYC United Solo Festival

Montreal-- The one-woman show that enjoyed a holy trinity of successful runs, an even holier trinity of MECCA nominations (Best Actress, Best Text and Revelation), an eventual win for Best Text and Toronto’s Launchpad Award for Emerging Artists, is coming to New York City in November to participate in the largest jury-run festival of solo shows in the world!

 8 Ways my Mother was Conceived, written and performed by Michaela Di Cesare, took Toronto and Montreal by storm and is now ready to put the old adage to the test: If you can make it there, you’ll make it anywhere.

Or, as my mother puts it, “Baby, just make it here and never go anywhere. Ever.”

My Catholic Italian family believes my mother was conceived by a virgin. The logic being that my grandparents were unmarried when it happened. Therefore: act of God, NOT of the bod. A harmless myth – until I realized I suffered from a Virgin Complex that was sabotaging my love life.

“Di Cesare is a wonderful storyteller… Her characters are so well fleshed out that one feels almost like a part of the family after seeing the play. She seamlessly transitions from her adult self, to her mother, to a “bro” she dated, to her 8-year old self, each played with consistent and easily-distinguished voices and mannerisms…a remarkable snapshot of a distinctive slice of Montreal’s culture.”
-Chris Lane, The Charlebois Post
