See Me Naked won audience acclaim and numerous awards in previous productions. After a fantastic Seattle run in early 2012, and a successful Kickstarter campaign that spring, Maria dove back into the show - rewriting and investigating and expanding the text. New drummer Julian Zurdo joined the company, and in March See Me Naked re-debuted at the beautiful Capitol Theatre in Yakima.
See Me Naked is a brilliant interactive comedy that explores personal boundaries and feelings relating to being naked, both literally and symbolically. Following a striptease fail, an embarrassed amateur opens up to her audience about why exposing herself publicly is so difficult and so important for her to do. See Me Naked starts as a comic monologue, but soon becomes a dialogue when she begins to question members of the audience about their own feelings regarding being naked. The real heart of the show is how easily audiences contribute their own hilarious and often embarrassing experiences, making every performance unique.
Director Klob says, "This is a rare show it combines all of the elements I love in theater; See Me Naked tells a story, reveals something personal about the performer and engages the audience in an authentic way. It is also titillating without being bawdy, and it makes me laugh out loud. Maria and I developed and I directed this show over 10 years ago, and it never ceases to put a smile on my face or excite me to come back and rework it again."
