Written and Performed by Kamakshi Hart • Directed by and Developed with Jessica Lynn Johnson
A true image of beauty. Kamakshi Hart has a beautiful voice, whether chanting her mantra or singing out show tunes. Her story, although full of pain and trauma, is told so beautifully that the audience can’t help but be uplifted by her unquenchable spirit and her ability to triumph over that tragedy…We are so thankful that we had the opportunity to take the journey with her and to be able to apply it to our own personal battles. Of all the #MeToo stories at this year's Hollywood Fringe, 'Wild At Hart' is the most touching and powerful. Do whatever it takes to see this one." - Robert Leggett, LA Music Critic/Indie Voice
"The show is transformational. It is brave and heartfelt, honest and hilarious, knowing and knowable. It is far more Us Too than Me Too. This show is performed from time to time and I can only urge you to see it if you can, it will change you . . . in a good way." - Samantha Simmons-Ronceros, Noho Arts
A one-night only encore performance hosted by the Whitefire Theatre's Solofest 2020.
'Wild At Hart' is an award-winning, highly acclaimed, inspiring example of the power of solo theatre to uplift, heal and transform. Premiered at the Whitefire Theatre's Solofest 2018, invited back for 2019 and now 2020! Official selection of the Santa Monica Playhouse Binge Fringe Festival 2018 with an encore performance in their 2019 Benefit Series. 'Wild At Hart' was featured by the 2019 prestigious Los Angeles Women's Theatre Festival and honored at the Hollywood Fringe 2018 with an Encore Producer's Award and the Larry Cornwall Award for Musical Excellence. Kamakshi's one-woman play deeply engages the audience while striking a timely, powerful chord for all ages (mid-teen and up) and genders. Moving and miraculous, Kamakshi's wide range of talent is showcased through her performance of 25 characters and the songs that masterfully tell her personal tale of transformation. Urged to bring her story to the stage by the advent of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, all members of her audience regardless of background have identified with the central character of Shame. 'Wild At Hart' is a testimony to the power of healing and the building of resilience and empathy through the telling of and listening to our stories.
