AM I PRETTY NOW? Comes to Toronto Fringe
Directed by Conrad Coates (Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Tron: Legacy, Star Trek: Discovery, CBC's Save Me, and Acting Professor at Seneca College and at his own studio: Coates and Company), this unique look at the world's obsession with youth and beauty will be hilarious and touching. Based on her actual life, Herrera examines race and first generation Canadians living just outside the norm, and recounts her surgeries (in detail) all in the pursuit of trying to feel "pretty".
Written and starring, Stephanie Herrera, a Toronto native who moved to Durham Region to have a family and ended up also creating the not-for-profit Durham Improv Collective Inc., producing a plethora of plays, and hosting/creating/producing five shows on Rogers TV in Oshawa. Stephanie is a Canadian Comedy Awards and Latin American Achievement Awards nominee and winner of the "Best Entertainment" Art of Transition Award and is a THEA winner for Best Female in a Musical. She is an actor, director, producer, writer, singer, and voice-over artist who has just released her first book: The Ten Commandments...of Improvising!
Herrera's original musical score will be backed up by local piano man extraordinaire, Donald Guinn, and yes, Colin Mochrie makes an appearance, albeit, in photo form.
