Abby Morris details her experiences as a plus-size performer while dissecting cultural stereotypes about fat people. You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll go on angry feminist tirades! This piece explores an issue of representation that often goes unspoken, but is deeply felt by those who (literally) don’t fit the ideal.

More Than Tracy Turnblad is a cabaret about fat representation in musical theatre. Abby Morris details her experiences as a plus size performer while dissecting and dismantling the ever-present cultural stereotypes about fat people. You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll sing along! You’ll go on angry feminist tirades! The goal of this piece is to explore an issue of representation that often goes unspoken by the artistic community, but is deeply felt by those who (literally) don’t fit into the ideal.
