Phoenix-based production company Felicia Davis Productions (FDP) announced Friday that poetic sensation Jessica Holter will perform her all-new, one-woman show “Don’t Say the ‘P’ Word” at Herberger Theater Center on Saturday, Aug. 27.
Jessica-Holter-The-Punany-PoetThis show promises to take you on a journey of intense oratorical expression.
Executive Producer Davis has assembled a production cast including local radio personality Karlie Hustle as host. FDP has a signature style of bringing shows that have an eclectic mix of education and entertainment and this show will be no different.
In “Don’t Say the ‘P’ Word,” Holter (pictured, left) expands into the fullness of herself as a producer, writer and gifted orator in a performance that will touch all of your senses. Passionate  and powerful, the show is laced with elements of comedy, poetry and theatrics and full of riveting scenes that will not only entertain audiences but will also make them think.
The script is adapted from the collective works of the author and activist who shocked the world with a HBO feature that put a strangely erotic twist on AIDS awareness. The lawless lover, the humble Christian housewife, and the wholesome hottie all find themselves with an equal stake in a bustling city of words and wisdom, as their tales converge in this witty and thoughtful show about self-love and the laws of urban attraction.
“I’m excited to bring yet another quality production to the Phoenix community for the exclusive purpose of education, empowerment and entertainment,” said Davis. “I’ve worked with Holter in the past and with performances that appeal to a very diverse audience. She has a strong following that spans three generations.
“I’m grateful for the vision and the platform that allows for full self-expression in a unique way that moves the HIV awareness agenda forward.”
