Drop everything and create by Alya Michelson
Everyone has a story. Complicated, joyful, challenging, and beautiful. This is mine.

Hung Yung Terrarist, Always Look at the Bright Side during your shows at Hollywood and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Things will go wrong in any given situation if you give them a chance. Murphy’s law. It also seems to be the motto of my show. Like it or not. What’s my show about? No one knows.

Hopefully, by the end of the tour, I will at least have the costume figured out.
