“Irreverent, hilarious and deeply human … It’s a no-brainer. Ann Randolph is a comic genius … and not just any sort of hide-your-light-behind-a-bush kind a genius, but a hardworking, dare-to-put-it-out-there kind of genius.” —San Francisco Bay Times

Description

The (re)opening weekend of the critically acclaimed Loveland will be a benefit for The Marsh and will include a special performance by Laraine Newman, one of the original members of both The Groundlings and_ Saturday Night Live_, who will be performing from her piece called The Audition about her delightful escapades in the wonderful world of seeking work in her chosen field.

Join Ann Randolph as she takes us on the irreverent, hilarious and deeply human journey of Franny Potts. Facing up to the greatest loss of her life while flying from LA to Ohio surrounded by strangers, Franny stumbles her way from awkward confusion through the mystery, tragedy and beauty that unite all us.

A stunning performer, Ann Randolph in Loveland has received critical acclaim including The Chronicle’s man leaping out of his chair and has been running at The Marsh for the past year. Loveland also received the SF Weekly People’s Choice award. Mel Brooks compares Randolph to the late Gilda Radner for her audacious humor, her generosity and her ability to take us from tears to laughter in the same minute.
