Audiences describe this one woman show, MAIJA X, as an Identity Crisis of hysterical proportions. Here is your chance to get an intimate look at the complexities of being “The ethnically ambiguous Maija” in an often polarized world. Inspired by her frustrations with attempting to fit in and confronting her fear of being doomed to be alone for the rest of her life – Maija explores if the real issues are with herself. She has never fit in: not with men, not with her peers, not even within her own family. Being brought up amongst her upper class, virtuoso African American mother, Sicilian immigrant father, Irish stepmother, and Korean aunt, each family member clinging to their cultural traditions as they become exasperated with Maija for not being more like them, all united for one point of view:  “Maija has a crisis of identity”. This genuine piece of Maija’s life has neatly woven each character thread of America’s Melting Pot, without maija having to segregate audience ears, but palatably melts them together. Audiences can’t help but open their minds and empathize with Maija, as she uses hysterical humor and empowering stories to tackle this often taboo subject.  It is rare that you can listen to the plight of someone with a truly unique experience and still feel like you can relate to them.Maija’s exceptional ability to communicate gives us this experience, and demonstrates that our differences do not need to divide us. Embracing these cultural differences has the power to bring us together. At a time when our country is more divided than ever, her story is exactly what America needs right now making this the Must See show of the year!
