MOMAZING with Vanessa Lee Segale Khaleel Directed by Martha Rynberg
Growing up is hard to do. Balancing relationships,crystal fairs, work deadlines,spa appointments, babies, and taking a shower everyday-life can be a real trip. Embracing where you come from and allowing yourself to grow into the "new" you isn't always easy-but good champagne makes anything manageable. Well sometimes.
Directed by Martha Rynberg of the Solo Performance Workshop
Vanessa Khaleel is a comedic force of nature. I've rarely seen a more fearless and focused solo performer attack the stage the way she does. She portrays all that it is to be a new school woman with an old school upbringing. She's like an episode of Sex and The City put in a blender and mixed with a shot of Jack Daniels

Vanessa Lee Segale Khaleel was raised in the Bay Area and loves Mexican food. She literally stumbled upon solo perfomance when she was feeling a slight buzz at a Dave Chapelle show and went up to comedian W. Kamau Bell while he was chowing down on a Ceasar salad. Since becoming a member of Bell's Solo Performance Workshop, she has performed at venues all over the Bay Area, including The Shelton Theater, Menlo College, Stagewerx, CounterPULSE and at the Annual SF Theatre Festival. Her solo pieces combine the visceral, take no prisoners humor of comedy clubs, combined with the intimacy of theater. She likes the color pink, fine red wine, all face lotions, and thinks her dog is more interesting than your child.
