Endorsements, Support & Reviews for The Mutant Diaries
"Many thanks, Eva. I liked your show." - Dr. Mary-Claire King
Dr. King is the world-renowned geneticist who discovered the BRCA mutation and proved the connection between genetic mutations and disease. She is being portrayed by Helen Hunt in the new movie "Decoding Annie Parker."
"A one woman show delivered with so much raw emotion and intimacy that the audience may wonder whether they have accidentally wandered into a room where they overhear her private and innermost thoughts after learning of her BRCA gene mutation. Her journey carries us through the loss of her mother, to the discovery of her own personal superpower. Her presence on stage reflects the solace of the inner struggle, but the humor that she wraps around her musical delivery pulls the audience into her story as her life changing choices deliver triumph. It is about life, it is about death, and it is about the beauty of the human spirit, a must see." -- Dr. Frank DellaCroce, co-Founder of the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery (CRBS) and the St. Charles Surgical Hospital
"I enjoyed it very much. I loved best the talking parts. You have a great spin on things. Also, I could not get past the tatas song. That was so clever and hilarious. I will remember to use you when we get media requests for patient stories on genetics and cancer prevention." -- Elizabeth Swisher, Surgeon and Professor, Dept Ob/Gyn, University of Washington
"Mutant Diaires" resonates among women with BRCA mutations. Moon's decision – and her show – call attention to a dilemma increasingly faced by women as genetic testing becomes more widespread. In simply calling attention to the choices that women must make – and empowering them in the process, Moon has achieved her goal. - City of Hope
"Eva's show sent me on a roller coaster of emotions, from tears in the eyes to laughing my head off. It was humbling to be part of Eva's story and I felt like I was living through her journey with her. I can't thank you enough, Eva, for sharing your show with Macmillan. You are an inspiration." -- Kate Macauley, Macmillan Cancer Support, UK

"A great show, small but perfectly formed. Funny and sad in perfect balance, it made me laugh and cry, sometimes both at once! A must-see for people facing tough medical decisons - and their loved ones. If you only see one show this year about massive invasive surgery to avoid cancer, make it this one!

This brave, unflinching presentation of Eva's journey entertains as it elucidates. Quite a feat." — CM
"As a medical professional, I loved how this show took an abstract clinical diagnosis, and made it human; using pithy anecdotes, soulful tunes and hilarious lyrics to weave a personal and painful story with an uplifting ending." — KR

what people are saying about "7 deadly sins... and me"
"This hilarious one-woman musical was such a hit that new dates have been added, so if you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you do. The show explores the question of whether the path to Hell leads to happiness as Eva Moon encounters all seven deadly sins in one uproarious night. It’s like reading Dante in high school — only funny."
reviews for moon falling down
Irreverent and immense fun. The songs on the album are tongue-in-cheek, innuendo filled or just downright irreverent. You just know that they were having fun recording this album as you can almost hear the laughter in the vocals and music... Eva Moon & the Lunatics have a really great sound. Their music is top notch. And the lyrics are fun; filled with innuendo and biting commentary. They are irreverent, comically in-your-face and just plain fun to listen to...
-- Bruce Von Stiers, BVS Reviews
reviews for something's brewing
Whatever style she temporarily indulges in, her lyrics consistently feature wry twists and turns. Leaping from the musical equivalent of stand-up comedy to heartfelt autobiography, she clearly loves her craft.
-- Claude Flowers, King County Journal
(Live radio review of "Cash from Nigeria"): As music becomes more mature it’s important that we have artists who analyze the structure of this planet, just to maintian an honest balance. “Cash from Nigeria” by Eva Moon keeps its thumb on the pulse of modern day communication... the internet and e-mail. This song is a modern day Mark Twain novel, complete with all the hooks that even Randy Newman couldn’t spit out.
-- SongPlanet.com Radio Internet
"When she cuts loose, her voice just fills the space. And the lyrics were witty and/or soulful. I'm jealous of the way she's been able to craft the words to not only pull off joke after joke but also to weave together a world in a single song.
-- John Graham
Here is a video from her last show, "7 Deadly Sins... and Me" with her full band, which concluded a successful run in Seattle in 2010/2011.
