"So Amazing" the one-woman-show

"HBO’s Going Clear meets Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt in this one-woman comedy that takes you along for the ride as main character, Diana, gets into and out of a cult. Based on a true story, Diana’s family does everything they can to rescue her as the cult holds firm control."

2016 FRIGID NEW YORK SELECTION

About the play

Typical northern NJ girl, Diana, had a normal life.  She loved to sing and dance, had great friends and family who she could trust, and after graduating from college, she moved back to her hometown,  where she'd lived her entire life, and started a Zumba fitness studio.  Until, over the course of a few months and during the course of normal life activities, she became indoctrinated into a Korean cult.  Diana is not Korean, far from it.  And she's not someone you'd suspect would join a cult.  But her Catholic upbringing and typical suburban profile were preyed upon by master manipulators who succeeded at controlling every aspect of her life, unbeknownst to Diana and her family, who she lived with. So Amazing is a story of survival, family, friendship, and the phenomenon of mind control (undue influence). 

So Amazing is rated PG-13, viewer discretion is advised.

**TRIGGER WARNING** So Amazing contains depictions and/or portrayals of cult mind control, undue influence, cultic relationships, abusive relationships, assault and sexual assault, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  If you are unsure if this show will be a trigger for you, please read the About Cults page.  This show is a COMEDY (but does not make fun of cults or anyone suffering from the effects of cults, cultic/abusive situations, or PTSD) and has a happy ending. 

DISCLAIMER: So Amazing is based on a true story but is not a word-for-word telling of a true story. Throughout the play, you will see portrayals and depictions of systematic and deliberate behaviors that have been universally defined by authorities in mental health and law enforcement as mind control techniques. The use of these techniques is what makes a cult a cult. Therefore, this play does not target any one particular cult, including the cult that Diana Brown was formerly involved with. For the same reason, the resemblance of any part of this play to any real event or person is purely coincidental. Creative liberties are taken in this play to account for time and space of the production.
