Relationships can be so triggering . . .

After years of chasing unavailable women, Julie may have found her ideal girlfriend. She isn't afraid to break all the rules, prefers to make art rather than watch Netflix on the couch and thinks Julie's a creative genius. Best of all, she’s really into Julie. The only trouble is they can’t agree on one thing - that Julie is the problem.

Julie is a rare talent. Her show, Borderline A**hole, is funny, brilliant and an inquiry into her own shadow in service to the audience. Solo performance is definitely this gifted woman’s natural art form. She owns it with an original and dynamic perspective. Her humility and willingness to expose and question her own weaknesses, makes her anything but a borderline asshole. I had the privilege of supporting her on the early versions of the show. It was pure joy! Go Julie, go!!

Julie’s story about a relationship gone amiss is funny, moving, surprising, smart and educational. While working on the script with her, I laughed, I cried and I learned a great deal not only about Julie but also about myself. On a daily basis, I practice some of the techniques she embeds in her delightfully entertaining narrative. Her deeply personal story reveals universal elements and has a lasting impact in all the best ways.

I am so excited for Julie Gieseke’s solo show. Julie is hilarious, uber intelligent and this show should not be missed.
