Now battling breast cancer after fighting off lymphoma, Valerie does something most people facing cancer in their life probably wouldn't think of doing. With a fear that she she might lose the girls, she takes them out for one last hurrah: Time to get LAID! And does she succeed? Is there a happy ending? Come see the show to find out! This sexy, adventurous award-winning solo show follows the triumphant journey of one woman seeking her own "hulk-like" strength to find her superhero within to become a THREE-TIME CANCER SURVIVOR. An empowering and true inspiring story! With plenty of humor--guaranteed!

A review from her Off-Broadway run

Her journey on stage can barely be called "acting" because of how genuine it is - as though a light emanates from her very soul to make both her and her performance glow. Watching Valerie David perform The Pink Hulk: One Woman's Journey to Find the Superhero Within is something so rare and so marvelous; it is the most powerful and poignant two hours I have ever spent at a theater. Her performance is life changing...and we should all be a little grateful that there are people like Valerie David to lighten the way...
Kristen Morale of Broadway World, NYC

Here is the full Broadway World Review


"Valerie David, who has the talent of a Broadway star, decided to write this show to share her experiences and empower those facing adversity in life. The Pink Hulk began touring the country in 2016 and Valerie David began accumulating awards for this extraordinarily moving, candid, and insightful show. The Pink Hulk is a 60-minute experience you will not soon forget."
--Applause! Applause! New York City

"There is clearly nothing about Valerie that isn't exceptional. The Pink Hulk is a triumph of the one-woman show format. The Pink Hulk is the apogee of cancer narratives; the zenith, the apex. You cant get much better than this."
--DC Metro Theater Arts
