A formidable and hilarious balance of sketch and compelling speculation where the subject is basically a complete unknown--Liana ultimately helps us understand this through her production.... full review

Funny, smart, and tears down a lot of preconceived notions we have about the first lady. A great sketch/variety one woman show that asks how well we really know our celebrities. ... full review

Fifty Shades of Melania is a fun, smart, and thorough jab at FLOTUS. Liana Mesaikou delivers a fearless performance as the First Lady You'd like to Fuck, full of humor and wit. A needed dose of comedy in today's political climate, you'll regret missing the opportunity to Make America Beautiful Again. ... full review

If you don't know anything about Melania Trump's antics you may not understand a lot of the jokes but if you're like me and madly stalk all the Melania Trump hashtags (#freeMelania, anyone?) then you'll get the jokes right away. Liana takes on a journey through the many different "shades" of a woman so many of us are curious about. My personal favorite was the Pussy Power one that made us have hope that Melania would be on our side until...(spoiler alert) she takes off her metaphorical mask and says something along the lines of "you really thought I'd be on your side?" or something like that. GAH. That got me and is too, too real whether we want to believe it or not.... full review
