Fringe veteran Cory Wojcik shows why he is among Winnipeg’s top theatrical talents with Mix Tapes From My Mom, a one-man storytelling show.
As the frontman of a five-piece live band, Wojcik is also the lead vocalist and guitarist for a nostalgia-infused playlist of tunes performed live throughout the 90-minute play.
The band serves as the perfect accompaniment for a powerhouse script, delivered with a balance of emotional heft and hilarious one-liners.
Sharing a story this deeply personal on a public stage can be a challenge for any actor, but Wojcik is the type of performer whose charisma draws in the audience to create an immediate emotional connection.
That intimacy makes it easier to share a heartfelt performance, creating several occasions for both tears and laughter.
The genuine emotion leaves a lasting impact, demonstrated by a rousing and well-deserved standing ovation on opening night.
