We were pleased that they didn't gouge the consumer on the cost of drinks, snacks and T-shirts/hats. Everything was very low key and affordable. A nice group of people run this place.

The weather was fair. I wore casual clothes. It is not a fancy affair.

Absolutely fantastic! Every man and woman who wants to understand the importance of a healthy sexual life should see it, and then tell their friends!

Actors were fine actors who tried hard but neither could sing. Play is at least one-half hour too long. Not enough real insight and so it just churns along stating the obvious.

Written by Mariann Aalda & Iona Morris

Directed by Penny Johnson Jerald

Musical Director/Arranger-Composer: Munyungo Jackson

A recovering empty-nester after “her-kids-went-off-to-college-and-her-husband-flew-the-coop,” Ginger Peechee-Keane, (Mariann Aalda) and her younger, but more worldly, “never-been-married-but-kissed-by quite-a-lot-of-men,” sister, Sonia Peechee, (Iona Morris) have had very different life experiences. Now at mid-life, they have enthusiastically joined forces to become the “Tony Robbins(es)” of mature sexuality by creating the Multiple Orgasm Initiative for Sexual Transformation (M.O.I.S.T.).

Billed by its writer-performers, Iona Morris and Mariann Aalda as a sex-istential comedy, “MOIST!” is a lyrical, comical, musical, frequently literal, sometimes philosophical — and at one point, even hysterical — telling of a woman’s sexual cravings, wants and needs from the first-blush of teen-age awakening to the experiences that lead to becoming a confident, sexual sage.
