Following sold-out performances at Joe’s Pub, 54 Below, and an extended run at Sophie’s @ Broadway, Musical Theatre Factory presents the farewell engagement of Shakina’s ONE WOMAN SHOW, September 2-4 at 8pm. Recounting in song and story the exploits and misadventures that led to her gender transition, Shakina’s public approach to gender confirmation is living performance art with a dark, funny, and powerful cabaret edge.
A story of surviving the 90s and creating a new life in a new millennium, ONE WOMAN SHOW features original songs written for Shakina by Sam Salmond, Julianne Wick Davis, Joey Contreras, Joel Waggoner, Nikko Benson, and Joe Iconis. Jeremy Robin Lyons music directs, with Mike Rosengarten (guitar), Joseph Wallace (bass), and Jeff Roberts (drums) in the band.
ONE WOMAN SHOW runs September 2-4, with a $25 suggested donation at the door. $20 advance reservations can be made online by following the links below. There will be a going-away party for Shakina on Thursday night after her final performance. Admission to the party is free with event registration to any of the three performances, or a $10 suggested donation to MTF.
