Problem Cat: A Love Story 
“Moving, Hilarious, so riveting!” LocalTheatreNY.Com
 
“Cerna has so much energy that at times it seems as though he has a full crowd on stage with him” –The Washington Post
 
J.D. Cerna, noted for his bravura performance in his GLAAD-Media Award Nominated solo piece “Not as Cute as Picture”, is presenting a new piece called “Problem Cat: A Love Story”.
 
“Problem Cat” follows the odyssey the writer found himself on after he suffered a romantic breakup and a failed attempt to save the life of a neighbor who jumped to her death from eight floors above his apartment balcony.
 
Quickly diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder following those events, Cerna, after taking one medicine after another, decides he needs one more form of therapy – a pet.
 
But the pet – a terribly obese cat with several problems – provides Cerna with a new set of challenges that he must overcome if he is to regain his sanity and his comfort zone.  New challenges arise when his neighbors, clinging to their building’s “no pets Bylaw”, discover the cat and raise hell – and lawyers -- to remove the cat from the building.  Cerna and his obese cat ended up on the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather.  
 
“Cerna writes with a wonderful sense of humor and humanity” – NY Daily News
 
“See this show.  I've seen it.  It’s Great!” – Christine Lahti  (Golden Globe, Emmy, Obie and Oscar Winner)
