Featuring Rosie O’Donnell in a hybrid form of standup comedy, inspired by her recent near-fatal heart attack. In a comic and touching performance, she shares her experience with heart disease, the leading cause of death among American women, and explores topics ranging from the challenges of raising five children to her obsession with Barbara Streisand. O’Donnell’s return to the stage is an honest, hilarious and intimate take on life.
