Pretty Beast: A One-Woman Show Featuring Kazu Kusano

Born into darkness, comedy is her superpower!

Raised in Japan by a schizophrenic mother and a distant, alcoholic father, Kusano discovered humor as a shield to survive, and battle sexist stereotypes

She is haunted by the label Otoko-Onna (男女 "boy-girl") but doesn't allow it to define her. PRETTY BEAST is Kazu's examination of her journey to self-acceptance and an exploration of healing existential pain with laughter.

Through monologue and re-enactment, she explores challenges that fueled her comedy and her move to America. An award-winning solo performer, Kazu Kusano delivers wry observation and raw physicality in this exuberant, rebellious ride.

"Kazu Kusano is a consummate storyteller," --San Francisco Chronicle

"Hilarious and devastating," --Georgia Straight

About the organizer

Organized by

The MAIN is the home for music, comedy, film, theatre, visual art, classes and workshops, meetings and serves as the welcome center for visitors to Old Town Newhall. The venue has been around for 20 years but, as of February 2017 the City of Santa Clarita took over operation and management of the space.

The theater has been transformed into a multi-use arts center including a monthly rotating art gallery, and free programs every Thursday night.

The venue is also available for private rentals, filming and productions.
