ELLIOT WHITE certified reviewer June 05, 2022
The word Bravery is thrown around a lot these days in theatre, but this production is perhaps the Bravest thing I have seen on stage. Teruko is unabashedly honest, hilarious, and just downright moving in her solo show. She proves herself as not only a necessary presence in the theatre, but also a necessary presence in the world. I cannot recommend this show enough!... full review

MADE IN AMERICA was one of the most surprising, gut-wrenching, heartfelt, high energy, personal, beautiful, powerful shows I’ve ever seen. If you have the chance to see it, you simply have to. Teruko and Titi are stars!!!... full review

MADE IN AMERICA is intense, but nothing short of captivating. Teruko immerses the audience in her story through an expressive and effortlessly engaging performance. She shares her intimate struggles as well as her strength. The next time I hear the United States National Anthem, I'm going to think of Teruko because it's stories like hers that exemplify the bravery and affirm the pride this country contains. In short, MADE IN AMERICA is life-affirming.... full review

It begins with Teruko lying in the dark. She just called 911. She needs help. Then we went through her life journey, from being a super sexy performer in kindergarten to her stint as a dominatrix, to marrying the penguin from Happy Feet, to following her dream. There are painful moments and there are moments where you laugh out loud. Teruko shows so much strength, vulnerability, creativity, and incredible acting. I recommend this show to everyone: immigrants, Americans, and humans. Also, Titi the dog is a gifted amd disciplined actor.... full review
