Kamakshi Hart’s one-woman show, Wild at Hart, will be performed at Santa Monica Playhouse on Saturday, November, 16, at 8 p.m. The entire proceeds will benefit the 60-year old Santa Monica Playhouse Benefit Series, a non-profit theatre gem.
Hart premiered at the Whitefire Theatre’s Solofest, official selection of the Santa Monica Binge Fringe Festival and the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival and was honored at the Hollywood Fringe with an Encore Producer’s Award and the Award for Musical Excellence.
This one-woman play deeply engages the audience while striking a timely, powerful chord for all ages (mid-teen and up) and genders. Moving and miraculous, her wide range of talent is showcased through her performance of 25 characters and the songs that masterfully tell her personal tale of transformation.
Inspired to bring her story to the stage by the advent of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, her audiences, regardless of background, have identified with the central character of Shame. Wild At Hart is a testimony to the power of healing through speaking up and telling our stories.
One night only to support the Santa Monica Playhouse Benefit Series. Tickets ($20) available at: santamonicaplayhouse.com/wildathart.html.
Samantha Simmons-Ronceros of Noho Arts writes: “The show is transformational. It is brave and heartfelt, honest and hilarious, knowing and knowable. It is far more “Us Too” than “Me Too.” This show is performed from time to time and I can only urge you to see it if you can, it will change you…in a good way.”
