Jonna's Body, Please Hold

Tickets $18 general & $15 seniors/ members

The outrageously funny chronicle of Jonna Tamases’ real-life bouts with cancer (yes, we just used cancer and funny in the same sentence) takes us on a masterful journey inside Jonna’s body, where a sassy receptionist fields calls from a parade of quirky body parts.  When two nasty killers invade, it’s a fight for Jonna’s life.

The one-woman play has been called “Captivating…Thoroughly original…Hilarious” by Daily Variety and “Witty…Delightful…Unabashedly theatrical” by the LA Times, while raved, “Jonna stole my heart…Heartfelt, funny and poignant”.   Garnering rave reviews and standing ovations nationwide, and nominated for two Los Angeles Ovation Awards – Best World Premiere Play and Best Lead Actress, the play is a cancerous dark comedy that ventures inside the crazy world of Jonna's Body.  There life's daily chaos is corralled by Pearl, Jonna's loyal, internal receptionist, as she takes calls from the likes of Sgt. Coif leading a head full of unruly troops; Upper Back, frantically knotted and uptight; and Uta and Ula, begging to be released from their brassiere imprisonment.  When two intruders move in, killers who will stop at nothing to take over, the offbeat citizens of Jonna's Body are suddenly thrown into their greatest battle ever, the fight to save Jonna’s life.  It’s a wild ride into the realm of health, illness, joy and the beauty of life.

Tickets available online or Wildberries Market, Wildwood Music or call 822-1575 to reserve.
