NYT34 - (NYT34) CHERRY HILL, N.J. -- Feb. 14, 2005 -- FUSION-FACTOR -- Rachel Factor performing her solo show about her religious journey in Cherry Hill, N.J., in January. In many ways, Rachel Factors show is typical of one-woman performances: theres the microphone, the bar stool, the empty stage; several original songs; autobiographical monologues full of humor, pathos, bittersweet memories. And if the title, "J.A.P.," might be offensive to Asians or to Jews, who may recognize the shorthand for "Jewish American Princess," then that is not so unusual either. Performers often lampoon their own heritage, and that is precisely what Factor, a Japanese-American and unreligious Christian who converted to Orthodox Judaism, is doing.
