Becky Feldman’s one-woman show “Tight” hilariously chronicles her ongoing issues with pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction. The mysteries of the female anatomy have puzzled learned men for millennia. So apparently they gave up. You might imagine that by now all kinds of therapeutics and medicines and highly developed surgical procedures would be available for such a vital portion of the population and their, frankly indispensable, genitalia. Should I really be surprised that there is not?

Becky Feldman leads us step by step through the problems she has with her vagina, as well as the impact it has had on her romantic life and where she thought she might be by now.  Married with children anyone? Of course that’s not all it’s cracked up to be and Becky knows this.  And as she tells us all about the therapeutic nesting dildos, the numbing creams, the various inept boyfriends, her sex therapy and vulva massage experiences, and most importantly her hopefulness, she does so in the most brilliantly funny and endearing way. 

Becky’s deadpan and truthful humour, delivered with searing wit and near scientific detail had me weeping with joy and laughter. 

Sorry, Becky. She has opened up an entirely new world I knew absolutely nothing about, and I’m a woman!  Unnerving doctor visits abound as she navigates the ins and outs of the gynecological world, so to speak. The show is sublime, there is an actual cuddly toy vulva, which I am tempted to re-create for my granddaughter.

Becky Feldman is an utterly brilliant and gifted comedic actress and writer. This show is just one of her many gifts to the universe. 

She has a podcast, “Too Stupid to Live” where she reviews romance novels with guests (which I am now subscribed to), and is a frequent guest star on comedy shows, and writes her own shorts and series for Funny or Die.

This play was packed the night I saw it, so clearly the word is out about Becky and her nesting dildos. I predict many Hollywood Fringe accolades for this brilliant lady…I will never look at vaginas in quite the same way again! Bravo Becky…bravo.
