Theatre Reviews

This one-woman show by Susan Jere­my tells the sto­ry of acclaimed 1950’s jazz musi­cian John­ny Swin­ton who had it all — the life, the career, the fam­i­ly and a home. How­ev­er he also had a big secret that he didn’t know how to share; he was a woman. Jere­my deliv­ers a sol­id per­for­mance weav­ing between the roles of John­ny, his moth­er, wife and son. The sto­ry is told through a series of inter­views with the char­ac­ters and flash­back sto­ry sequences. She makes good use of props and music to draw the audi­ence into this tale. This is an inter­est­ing sto­ry that looks into the past, and the impacts and real­i­ties of social norms, sex­ism, gen­der­ing and iden­ti­ty. This is an engross­ing show that is well writ­ten and per­formed and is def­i­nite­ly worth check­ing out.
