Human Race’s “My 80-Year Old Boyfriend” is THE Show of the Summer
"Watching Charissa perform her life’s story is a privilege. Throughout the performance she continues to amaze the audience with her ability to beautifully belt song after song, dance her heart out with ease and even plays the piano – she’s a triple-threat unlike any I’ve seen on a Cincinnati stage.
In partnership with Charissa, Christian Duhamel and Ed Bell have woven together a masterpiece. Using the thread of friendship, the team has sewn together the many fabrics of our heroine’s life in a beautiful, thoughtful and realistic tale showcasing the hardships of life and the importance of chasing your dreams. The music, lyrics and storyline are so uniquely compelling and powerful it’s almost hard to believe that this show is not already a Broadway hit."
