GRAMMY Award winning virtuoso meets the biggest health challenge of her life (Breast Cancer), and proceeds with comedy and wit, and comes out singing.
Marcy Marxer is a GRAMMY® winning singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who takes us on her expedition through Breast Cancer and neuropathy caused by Chemotherapy, tempered by her wacky sense of humor and ability to make the personal universal.

Cathy also plays the mammogram technician, Cindy at the Wig Shop and Marcy’s mother.

The heartwarming musical comedy takes us through Marcy’s many stages of diagnosis and discovery with hope, grace and unique style. From comparing her cancer journey to being dragged through a car wash while playing the musical washboard, to dealing with everyone’s “Unsolicited Advice” to showing the ridiculous “My Chemo Bag” given to her at the hospital, Marcy sticks to the truth while finding humor in many moments. Why is there a lint roller in that bag? Cindy at the Wig Shop put Marcy at ease in the transition to baldness, and also at times told more truth than the doctors who soft-pedaled potential side effects to treatment.
“Laughter and tears I didn’t know I needed.” – Lillian Werbin, CEO Elderly Instruments, Daughter of Breast Cancer
The ten songs span multiple styles of music showcasing Marcy’s talents on the ukulele, mandolin and electric guitar through swing, punk, rock, jazz, Gospel and old-time country.
Marcy triumphs over adversity while celebrating forty years together with the love of her life and musical partner, Cathy, ending with a perfect duet, “Two Peas In A Pod.”
The American Cancer Society has indicated that by the year 2030, 1 in 2 people in the US will be diagnosed with cancer. Sooner or later all of us will be caregivers, patients, loved ones in someone’s cancer circle.
ALL WIGGED OUT helps us navigate this maze while showcasing the power of hope, the power of love and the power of advocacy.
GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award winner Tom Paxton called All Wigged Out “Hilarious and deeply moving”.
For medical professionals who work with cancer patients, this film is a tool for developing empathy and understanding cancer from the patient’s point of view.
