It may be true that “all the world’s a stage” but on the evening of 19 October 2019 that stage belonged solely to actress Susie K. Taylor in her epic monologue performance in “Jewbana” at Swampspace in Miami Design District. Jewbana was absolutely hysterical, contemporary and at the same time personal in that through the monologue, the actress was able to portray an array of characters including both her sons, her sister, her mother, mother-in-law, ex-husband and husband. Costume changes/character transitions were accompanied by the song from 1925, “That Girl Susie”, with lyrics like “If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl…” While in fact, I did not know Susie, I felt like I did by the end of the show. Adding to the personal feel of the evening, many of the characters that she portrayed were either in the standing room only audience themselves and otherwise many audience members appeared to have a close connection to Susie and her life.
Susie truly took us on a trajectory laced with a marijuna edible-related experience but I won’t divulge any further details as you must see this heartwarming show for yourself!
