Ann Randolph's LOVELAND: Oct. 28, 2012
Join Randolph as she takes us on the irreverent, hilarious and deeply human journey of Frannie Potts, an out-of-control, sexually charged misfit overwhelmed by grief. Facing up to the greatest loss of her life while flying from LA to Ohio surrounded by strangers, Frannie stumbles her way from awkward confusion through the mystery, tragedy and beauty that unite all us. Randolph's critically acclaimed solo show, LOVELAND, comes to Katharine Cornell Theater in Vineyard Haven, MA for one night only.
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" which was produced by Mel Brooks and the late Ann Bancroft was the Winner of LA Weekly's "Best Solo Show" and the Los Angeles Times Ovation Award for "Best Solo Performer."
