Starring Evan Laurence, David F. Slone, Esq., Christopher Noffke, Danny Smith and Richard C. Lurie. Mark Berman has so given up on life after being jilted by his "true love," that he's developed an alternate personality, the outrageous Cricket Santiago, who has taken over. Mark is committed to a sanitarium, where Rabbi Kishka Meldstein and Cricket's faithful caretaker, Nurse Terry Sass-Poo, the preoperative transsexual, are sent to cure him. The Rabbi and Nurse Terry soon discover they are in the same boat as Mark Berman – living life without really being themselves. Presented in an absurdist, farcical style, My Inner Mark Berman promises an unforgettable musical and theatrical experience.
