I hear from people nearly every day who want to see me perform "The Mutant Diaries," but I can't be everywhere - until now.

"Superpowers stem from incredible sacrifices in "The Mutant Diaries: Unzipping My Genes" - a funny, feisty and frank solo musical. On learning she had the BRCA genetic mutation, spiking the risk of breast cancer to 87% and ovarian cancer to 55%, Eva Moon made a life-altering choice to remove her healthy breasts and ovaries. Live music, warmth and generous amounts of humor are all expertly woven in this story -- and the extraordinarily empowering results of that choice."

My October performance at the award-winning Rogue Machine Theatre in Los Angeles was professionally videotaped and now it's time to turn that raw footage into a DVD.

Editing, mixing and the first run of 500 DVDs will cost more than $5000, but with that much support, we can make it happen. If we go past the minimum goal, we can enhance the production and make more DVDs. Every penny will go into the project.

My live performances of The Mutant Diaries have entertained, educated and inspired audiences in Seattle, London, Los Angeles and more. Now, team up with me to reach the world! 

Please pre-order today. And don't forget you can give them as a gift!

What people are saying about The Mutant Diaries:

"Eva is a one-woman force of nature full of wisdom and musical comedy."

"A story EVERYONE should hear. She'll leave you feeling optimistic whatever you face."

"No matter how many people are in the audience with you, you feel like you have just had a chat with a friend."

"All my life I’ve been afraid of breast cancer. Somehow, this made those fears a little less scary."

"My heart is full with emotion and my face hurts from laughing."

"It’s a human story, it’s a woman’s story, told with music, warmth and humor."

"I loved how this show took an abstract clinical diagnosis, and made it human."

Risks and challenges

As I learned last year, there's no way to know what life is going to throw at you. In fact, it's rare when things go off without a hitch! But this is a low-risk project. The show has already been videotaped, I have a professional videographer with decades of experience ready to roll on editing and have scoped out the production options. Even if it goes over budget, I'm prepared and determined to see it done properly. What could go wrong?

(knock wood!)
