WHERE: The Kraine Theater, 85 East 4th Street, New York, NY 10003

Funny, outrageous and true! This critically acclaimed comedy hit from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival will have you laughing till you weep. It’s a show about far-out families, quirky girlfriends and boobs…not necessarily in that order.

The Happiest Medium says, Theatre magic doesn’t happen every day or in every show. Those instances when time stops and you are transported from every day life into the world of a writer or a performer are happening right now at the FRIGID New York festival in a basement theater called Under St. Marks.

Katan’s focus and energy as a performer, and her sharp sense of the absurd as a writer, help keep what could be harrowing material in different hands consistently funny. There isn’t a shred of self-pity in her tale.” http://www.nytheatre.com/showpage.aspx?s=savi12134

StageBuzz review

It’s odd to think that a play about breast cancer and breakups can be a comedy, but Tania Kattan’s riotously funny Saving Tania’s Privates is just that. Dealing with her family issues, dating life, and her two bouts of breast cancer and the mastectomies that followed each bout, this could have been a really dark play. Kattan went the other route, and created a wildly funny, but remarkably moving play about her life and struggles. Through humor, Kattan finds strength, and that comes out clearly in show.

Saving Tania’s Privates, The Bravura of Ms. Katan (FRIGID New York 2011)

Theatre magic doesn’t happen every day or in every show. Those instances when time stops and you are transported from every day life into the world of a writer or a performer are happening right now at the FRIGID New York festival in a basement theater called Under St. Marks. The mastermind behind all this power brought to the stage is Tania Katan with Saving Tania’s Privates. A personal, witty, no-nonsense recount of a Jewish lesbian’s challenge with cancer since the age of 21.

The play starts with an invasive TSA airport pat down by a male security officer; Tania suggests the female security officer must be uncomfortable with the fact that she looks like a boy and has no breasts. Thus we are automatically introduced to the subject at hand and how it will be handled in the next 58min (give or take).

Tania Katan’s Privates, Saved.

www.velvetparkmedia.com

Openly funny woman Tania Katan made the decidedly unfunny topic of breast cancer into a witty, raucous tale of sex, boobs, and crazy girlfriends.
