Solo musical comedy: how one woman stopped cancer before it could strike

Atlanta area, March 15

How far would you go to save your life?

Like Angelina Jolie, Seattle performer/composer Eva Moon faced an impossible choice: remove her healthy breasts and ovaries or face almost certain odds of cancer.

Now the touring artist has written a solo musical about her experience and will be returning to her former home town, Atlanta, for one performance only, on Saturday, March 15 at 7:30 pm.

"The Mutant Diaries: Unzipping My Genes" is a feisty, frank, funny and fearless original musical comedy about turning a devastating prognosis into a new lease on life. Moon shares the humor as well as the struggle of dealing with a life-changing personal challenge. "This show grabs your heart and won't let go," said Moon. "I bet my breasts and ovaries on the results of a DNA test - and lived to laugh about it."

After learning she had the BRCA1 genetic mutation, which raises the risk of breast cancer to 87% and ovarian cancer to 55%, Moon made the difficult choice to undergo multiple prophylactic surgeries instead. "In the process, I discovered my mutant superpower," Moon said. "I got to change the future." The show has a broader message of hope and resilience that reaches far beyond her personal story. Anyone who has faced difficult choices in life will relate.

Reviews from the London run of The Mutant Diaries:

"No matter how many people are in the audience with you, you are left feeling like you have just had a chat with a friend and shared something quite personal."

"It's a human story, it's a woman's story, told with music, warmth and humour. See this show you'll remember Eva Moon and her piano for a long time."
