About the Program
LA premiere! Recently honored as Best Production at New York City’s United Solo Festival, this one-woman show is a powerful, funny, poignant, and personal story based on writer-performer Anne Torsiglieri’s experience as the mother of a son diagnosed with autism. Combining music and humor with collected true stories, Torsiglieri gives a tour de force performance with heart and warmth.
Stage Biz Review raves that “Anne Torsiglieri is a master storyteller and damn good mother!”
Music composed by Brad Carroll. Directed by Risa Brainin. Developed through LAUNCH PAD at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and produced in partnership with The Art of Autism.
Note: This performance contains strong language that may not be suitable for children under 12.

Plus, at 1:15 p.m., parents and caregivers are invited to join a Noah’s Ark educator for a twenty-minute guided walkthrough of the Noah’s Ark galleries.
