One Woman Standing - Emerging Artists New Works
Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind, once-a-year festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself enthralled by One Woman Standing, or perhaps laughing with One Man Talking, maybe even humming along to a few new Notes from a Page. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.

TAKE SPECIAL NOTE: Each title in the series has only one performance, one date, one time, so please book carefully. Scroll down and find the show, or shows, of your choosing. And then check the other listings for "One Man Talking" and "Notes from a Page" and book tickets for those shows as well!

People have always "told me things." Often, I took their stories at face value. In a less-than-stellar moment of feeling like I'd completely screwed up my life, these 4 people showed up. It was as if the lens focused and there in front of me were the gifts they'd given me.  Success isn't about the events of our lives; it's about the people.

Shopping with kids is not a serene experience and I resent anyone who pretends it is. A hilarious yet poignant strip-down of the seemingly self-perceived wonder woman of our time. Beautiful, smart, nauseatingly successful both in film and family. Good Will Ambassador? A beautiful husband? Who wouldn't be jealous! Then again maybe there's more than meets the eye behind the press and the facade.
