PASADENA – Women, ever wonder what it’s like to step into a man’s body? Men, ever wonder what it’s like to feel a woman’s pain, even adopt it as your own?
Under My Skin at the Pasadena Playhouse explores this highly interesting and entertaining concept when New York’s most eligible bachelor and an intelligent, single working mom see life through each other’s perspectives.
Harrison Badish, played by Matt Walton, is all about stock profits and money until his world is turned upside down and he is forced to view life through the eyes of a single working mother caring for an ailing grandfather and experience his new life in a woman’s body.
Melody Dent, played by Erin Cardillo, is also forced out of her natural body as well and begins life anew partaking in the perks and problems of a cocky C.E.O. executive and discovering what is both fascinating and peculiar about a man’s body.
Will Harrison or Melody discover empathy? Will there be any change in views from the top percent of the 1%? Find out in director Marcia Milgrom Dodge’s new play at the Pasadena Playhouse, now through October 7.
