WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Fasten your seat belts for a ride you will never forget! Critically-acclaimed writer/performer Ann Randolph joins the Kogod Cradle Series in a special extended presentation of Loveland, an "unforgettable, over-the-top comedy that forces people to think" (The Huffington Post). Randolph brings humanity to the role of Frannie Potts, an irreverent oddball trapped on a plane as she travels from California to Ohio for her mother's funeral. Accompanied by a cast of hilarious characters, all portrayed by Randolph, we witness the tragedy, beauty and humor that unite us all in grief. Compared to the late Gilda Radner (The San Francisco Examiner) and called "a genius" by comedy master Mel Brooks, Randolph is one performer not to miss. Audiences are invited to stay after the performance for a post-show writing workshop, led by Randolph.
