Ann is phenomenal and I loved her show. Original, clever and very funny. At one point I laughed so much I wasn't sure I could stop! Go see this show if you can.

_Loveland was a hit with Goldstar members in San Francisco and Berkeley
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry… Randolph mines new depths of hilarity.” —
San Francisco Chronicle _
“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.” —


Fasten your seatbelts as writer/performer Ann Randolph takes you a cross country flight you will never forget. Hilarious and deeply human, Randolph embodies many characters, including our heroine Frannie Potts — an out of control, sexually charged misfit overwhelmed by grief. Facing the loss of the greatest love of her life, her mother, she stumbles from outrageous confrontation and awkward confusion to a glimpse of the mystery, tragedy, and beauty that unites us all.
