"GO! Karliak's execution is top-drawer. His delivery is brisk but unrushed; his sense of humor is contemplative but unsentimental. Karliak's range is gleefully apparent."- LA WEEKLY

"Karliak is a gifted performer with incredible comic timing. Donna/Madonna makes us all want to give our mothers a hug and tell them how much we appreciate them." - FRONTIERS

"John Paul Karliak charms and mesmerizes..."

"WOW! You'll find yourself laughing out loud and wiping away tears virtually non-stop from Donna/Madonna's fabulous start to its fantabulous finish." - STAGE SCENE LA

In this award-winning*, autobiographical one-act, writer/performer John Paul Karliak wants desperately to be the perfect son for his adopted mother: a doting Catholic housewife from Scranton, PA. But realizing he will never be the ideal local boy, he seeks answers from a very different source: his fashion-writing, married-to-a-British-pop-star birth mother. “Donna/Madonna” is a tale of motherly love and finding acceptance told through stories, songs and characters like Darth Vader, Carol Channing and John Paul's unforgettable mothers. Hilarious and poignant, this cross-country journey from Scranton to LA shows that sometimes you have to meet a "Material Girl" to truly appreciate "America's Sweetheart."

Proceeds will benefit Kinship Center©, a California nonprofit agency dedicated to the creation, preservation and support of foster, adoptive and relative families for children who need them.
