Phenomenal Everywhere answers the question, “what does the self-love journey look like while traveling the world?”
Phenomenal Everywhere, a solo theater performance written and performed by award-winning artist, author, and presenter Lacey C. Clark! from North Philadelphia, is an inspirational coming of age tale about a soulful traveler’s flavorful 20-year journey around the world and into herself. The show is resonating with audiences in over three continents worldwide.
Phenomenal Everywhere is an autobiographical tale about a spunky brown American girl, named Phenomenal, who finds her voice through the ups and downs throughout the travels of eight countries and five continents. The show does something unprecedented and unique today: it features the perspective of an African American on global travel, despair, self-love, self-acceptance, healing, gratitude, and hope.
“This is a show about the dreams, inspirations, and tenacity of one woman to explore the globe, while also exploring her own personal discoveries along the way,” said Clark! “With Phenomenal Everywhere, the audience is going to be presented with a rollercoaster of emotions, ranging from happiness and hope to the struggles of despair. We explore the depth of one African American woman and how she sees, feels, and hears the international world around her, something not ever done before.”
Already a critically acclaimed international show, Phenomenal Everywhere has been performed in Thailand and Colombia. At both locations, it received rave reviews and a sold-out audience. Passionate about sharing it with more audiences worldwide, Clark! said that she is in the process of continuing to tour it globally.
“For someone who hasn’t traveled, this is like watching a Discovery Channel’s version of her experience. My taste buds were stimulated. I could taste the food she described. Awesome!,” said Dr. Marcus Manns of the Globetrotting Mann’s Family in Colombia.
"An unflinching commitment to every role. The entire performance had us captivated and I couldn't look away. I was thrilled by the whole evening. Engaging from start to finish. I loved it! A seriously beautiful talent!" said Derek Smith, on Thailand’s performance of Phenomenal Everywhere.
Not just a performer, Clark! is the CEO of Sisters’ Sanctuary and a Founder’s Scholar with a B.F.A. from New York University. She is the author of Celebrate HER Now! and Phenomenally U. She has worked with the likes of Dr. Maya Angelou, Spike Lee, Jill Scott, Dr. Sonia Sanchez, and many other notable figures. A true traveler, Clark! has been traversing the globe for 20-years now, with eight countries and five continents to her name.
