According to the program notes, voiceover artist Carla Delaney wrote this one woman show as a birthday gift to herself, and if that’s true it’s a better gift than a pony. Voices is just about everything a solo show should be, personal and universal, funny and sad, familiar and unique, with a solid and well articulated question serving at its core: “When did I stop listening to my own voice?”
As a professional voiceover artist, it is only logical that in Delaney’s world everything should have a voice from the clarinet she wanted to play as a child, to her lungs, even her fear. Ably aided by director Jessica Lynn Johnson, everything that Delaney wishes to say comes across as loud and clear. And very, very funny. The call: GOLD

Written and performed by Andrea Schell, a veteran of The Moth, this is Homer’s Odyssey framed within a feminine perspective, where the journey is carried over human sexuality, a far vaster sea than Odysseus faced.
It was an amusing show, which the audience I saw it with, adored.

In 2013 Sarah Mitchell began interviewing a wide selection of individuals about “love.” A 72 year old man alone at the close of his life, the upwardly mobile hipster who cheated on his wife, the heavily medicated Vassar graduate, a three year old.
Each segment is well performed by Mitchell and the overall results are both touching and life affirming. If the show has one omission, it is Mitchell’s sidestepping of that which was her motivation in beginning these interviews.

Adam Carr is funny. And his show is funny, this despite it suffering from a bad case of “Standard seen-it, heard-it-itous.”
The insertion of Jonathan Schwartz as his mandolin playing conscience and stud-muffin David A. Gregory as his hunky doppelganger are nice touches, but the “let me tell you about the bad relationships I’ve been in” is just such a well-treaded path that the ruts are deep, even with some nice work by Corey Clifford as the homeless woman.
