I have seen this show twice now this fall (2010), and it is brilliant, and Ann Randolph is a comedic genius. Run, don't walk to get your tickets. It's one of the best theater experiences I've had in a while -- so memorable. Both times, members of...continued

funny and touching.
i'd rate it 4.5, as it may be too loud and energetically acted for the

Quotes & Highlights

Loveland’s run at the Marsh in San Francisco received great reviews from Goldstar’s members.
“You’ll laugh. You’ll cry… Randolph mines new depths of hilarity.” —”_San Francisco Chronicle":http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2010/01/11/DDUB1BE0CL.DTL
“Riotously demented and brilliantly humane. Not to be missed, Randolph is a rare caliber of solo performer…a first-class ride.” —
SF Bay Guardian _
“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 _
“The kind of breakthrough dramatic experience one yearns for but rarely gets in modern theatre.” -MyCulturalLandscape.com

Description

Join 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, 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. Randolph’s previous solo show, “Squeeze Box,” was the Winner of LA Weekly’s “Best Solo Show” and the Los Angeles Times Ovation Award for “Best Solo Performer.”
