  • Actor/writer/storytellers Amy Salloway and H.r. Britton first met while touring their original solo plays on the US and Canadian Fringe Festival circuit. Noticing their similar theatre geekery, penchant for overdisclosure, and loveably neurotic performance style, they mused, “We should do a show together.” And then that happened, a bunch of times. After joining up to perform Entwined in the 2011 Minnesota Fringe, Two Chairs Telling in November 2013, and the RISK! Podcast’s Live In…

  • [b]Does This Monologue Make Me Look Fat?[/b] Amy’s having one of those LIVES. Her uterus is rebelling, her perfect sister is destined for stardom, her boyfriend won’t give her a kidney, and the body-image workshop she signs up for becomes a surreal lesbian adventure. Will this be another night spent wandering the frozen foods aisle? Or somehow, can a single, spherical girl figure out where she fits? In this first solo show from actor/writer Amy Salloway, seven “mostly true” stories me…
  • Amy Salloway, creator of the hit solo shows, [b]"Does This Monologue Make Me Look Fat?"[/b] and [b]"Circumference", revisits the world of adolescence, angst and Jewish summer camp with....[b]"So Kiss Me Already, Herschel Gertz!"[/b] Milwaukee, 1986. Amy has a plan for her 15th summer: Transform from total dorkwad to Material Girl. Build This City on rock and roll. And pine for Ross Buckman until he sees her True Colors shining through. Instead, her parents ship her off to “freakishly Jewis…

    [i]It is then, as Ms. Gleby is announcing to the entire gym class that I’ve scored lower on the Presidential Physical Fitness Test than any student in the history of Cheese Creek Junior High, “lower even that the retards”, she barks, that I decide it. I can’t take this anymore. My body and I are getting a DIVORCE. Oh, it can hang there below my chin if it really wants to, but I will no longer speak to it or look at it or even acknowledge its presence. We are finished. Forever. Okay…
  • [b][url=http://www.amysalloway.com]Amy Salloway[/url][/b] has been called "hilariously self-loathing", "gifted at creating comedy from pain and embarrassment", and "the queen of self-deprecation", and she takes all of that as a compliment. Amy grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, graduated Summa cum Laude/Phi Beta Kappa in Theatre and Sociology from the University of Minnesota, and has lived most of her adult years in Seattle and Minneapolis. In August of 2003, after developing spoken word pieces an…
