Paige is candid and charismatic, and her voice is a great addition to the series. In the post show Q & A she confided that she began to write her own shows because she didn't see her life, culture, clothing styles and music represented in the plays she was seeing. We're elated her reality's finally being seen and heard... loud and clear. Highly recommended!
Writer and performer Paige Hernandez brings us her unique coming-of-age story, a 21st-century not-so-fairy-tale about Everygirl's search for acceptance, meaning, and her one true love. For ages 12+.
Using the language of hip-hop—dance, rhymes, and beats—Hernandez retraces her life growing up in Baltimore, recounting the joys, losses, and big bad wolves (who turned out to be heartless young men). Blending humor and honesty and embodying more than a dozen characters, she reveals (and helps us remember) not only the perpetual absurdity but also the universal struggles of adolescence.
Mixing live on stage for Paige In Full is Chicago D.J. Sadie Woods.
Part exhibit, part experience, h.g. is an extraordinary retelling of Hansel and Gretel andre-imagines what fairy tales, and theatre, can be. For ages 10+ (*absolutely nobody under 10 admitted--walk through exhibit/performance*).
