ďDonít Fake it baby, lay the real thing on meĒ from Moonage Daydream, by David Bowie. Mary Monahanís coming of age one woman show ďMoonage DaydreamĒ lays the real thing on us. The infinite loneliness, the impossible years of wondering and demanding, the waiting in the parking lot for something to happen. Itís all here, an emotional free fall thatís brings us back to ourselves and our own stories of survival and awakening.
Moonage Daydream is a heartfelt tribute to the hopefulness and innocence of youth, and how music and art can extend beyond that and profoundly affect oneís life and life path. Mary Monahanís earnest performance captured the full range of experience from the aloof high schooler to the mature adult, and artfully wove the thread of David Bowieís impact through it all.
Moonage Daydream is a revelation. I want to see it over and over again and bring my family and friends. It is so powerful to see an actor like Mary in such an intimate setting. Her story is gorgeous and she is a force.
