"It's Jerry Herman meets Salavador Dali as Kristine Zbornik takes you on a musical romp through the inner workings of her brain.† It's fun (like a haunted house), inspiring (like Jesus) and uncomfortable (like a bra that cuts into your back fat).† You'll leave being glad you're still you.† Or are you?," state press materials.†"The show includes 2 or 3 of her well-worn favorites ('Some People,' 'I Gotta Be Me' and one piece picked out of hat) as well as seven new pieces. To say anymore would be giving away the plot except that the show recently won the 2007 Bistro Award for Best Musical Comedy."† Peaco is also†the musical director.
Zbornik's credits include Mamma Mia!, Las Vegas (Rosie) for one year, The Tragic and Horrible Life of the Singing Nun (Mother Helen Lawson), Zorba at Reprise!; Forbidden Broadway original casts of Cleans Up Its Act and 20th Anniversary; Funny Girl Concert at The New Amsterdam Theatre (Mrs. Meeker), and†Man of La Mancha (the housekeeper) at Goodspeed Opera House. She wrote and created solo and original shows with Michael Schiralli, Jason Robert Brown, Jackie Hoffman, Seth Rudetsky, and Varla Jean Merman (the gender illusionist, i.e., drag queen) which have been performed in venues large and small around New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco and Atlantic City.
