Katie Rubin's WHY I DIED, A COMEDY! Set for Capital Stage This Weekend
Katie Rubin returns to Capital Stage with her hit comedy show WHY I DIED, A COMEDY! this weekend, August 8 & 9 at 8pm. Capital Stage will host this Sacramento Premiere of popular actress/comedienne Katie Rubin performing her one-woman show following sold-out performances of the show at the Hollywood Fringe Festival earlier this summer.
Audience favorite, and Nationally touring Solo Artist and Comedienne Katie Rubin premieres her fourth and most recent show. In WHY I DIED, A COMEDY!, Katie's pushy producer, Stan, is riding her to create a new show for production in L.A. Katie is eager to please, and excited to succeed. It just so happens, she is also dying... spiritually.
Will she be able to dissolve her attachments to all things worldly AND finish the show in time? Can her ego be fully "dissolved" and her show be fully "funny" at the same time? Furthermore, dissolution of the ego and release of attachment should bring perfect peace, right? Maybe...
In her signature style, Rubin tells a surprising story, 12 different characters, a song, a poem, and much hilarity to confront us with the raw, emotionally vulnerable truth of things. WHY I DIED, A COMEDY! addresses the questions and challenges raised by the soul-sucking aspects of being a person among other people. Laugh yourself into the subtler realms of consciousness. And don't worry. You can handle the truth.
