Los Angeles, October 30

How far would you go to save your life?

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 in Los Angeles for one performance only, on Wednesday, October 30 at Rogue Machine Theatre.

"The Mutant Diaries: Unzipping My Genes" is a feisty, frank 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 BRCA 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."

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."
