MOLLY BELL’S HYSTERICAL

Starring Molly Bell*
Directed by Adrienne Kaori Walters

Get ready to laugh and cheer with ‘Molly Bell’s Hysterical,’ a rollicking musical adventure celebrating resilience, dreams, and the magic of storytelling. Join the fun-filled journey where laughter leads the way to self-discovery and a night of theater you won’t want to miss!

Step into the manic mind of Molly Bell, a suburban mother of two and a writer/performer, who embarks on a transformative journey as she discovers that her own life is the very material for the musical, she must craft to find healing. “Molly Bell’s Hysterical” is a captivating tale that sheds light on how her physical illness begins to impact her mental health, while her relentless pursuit of fame takes a soul-stirring turn.

As Molly grapples with her mysterious illness, she finds solace in making herself the character of her own musical. She becomes both the protagonist and the playwright of her life story, as she weaves the threads of her struggles and triumphs into a captivating narrative. Writing herself to “The Other Side…” becomes the cathartic key to her own healing, allowing her to confront her fears and vulnerabilities head-on.

“Molly Bell’s Hysterical” blurs the lines between reality as Molly finds herself intertwined with her character, bridging the gap between her external and internal worlds. Her journey becomes an emotional rollercoaster, inviting the audience to join her on a transformative ride.

Join us for an unforgettable theatrical experience that blurs the boundaries between art and life. “Molly Bell’s Hysterical” is an intimate exploration of self-expression and healing, a celebration of the human spirit’s resilience, and a testament to the power of storytelling. Molly Bell invites us all to confront our own narratives and find healing in the act of embracing our true selves.
