Escape! Betrayal! Uh, Budget Plastic Surgery
Actress/Author DEBRA EHRHARDT knows Jamaica Farewell is more than a song. With the unwitting help of a CIA Agent, she risked her life escaping her home in Jamaica during a violent revolution to fulfill her life long dream of coming to America.
Actress/Author BRENDA ADELMAN’S mother was shot and killed by her father and then her father quickly took a new bride, her aunt. (her mother’s sister). Brenda’s one-woman show My Brooklyn Hamlet is about the power of forgiving the unforgivable.
On a less dramatic scale, although equally shocking, author/storyteller MARIANA WILLIAMS delivers the comic relief. She undergoes budget plastic surgery with a doctor practicing out of his suburban home in Park City, Utah.
Three condensed versions of three solo shows, promises a compelling evening of theater. The Washington Post says, “Debra Ehrhardt possesses a rare ability to mesmerize.” Of Brenda Adelman, the San Diego Examiner writes, “Adelman ends on a positive note…Brenda, her family and the audience become a life’s lesson in forgiveness, love and acceptance.” Chris Carpenter’s column, Curtain’s Up, in the Grunion Gazette writes, “This talented trio relates personal tales that skillfully manage to be both harrowing and hilarious, sometimes simultaneously. The full house responded enthusiastically to ‘Divas in Danger’ and it’s well worth checking out…Williams has a winning, personable storytelling style for sure!”
