New York City
“When I first saw [Squeeze Box], I was deeply moved. Ann Randolph’s amazing work, both as a writer and fellow performer, touched my heart and my mind so profoundly that I felt it belonged on the New York stage.” Anne Bancroft “She goes in and out of these characters. She’s a bit of a genius. I’ve been around, and I haven’t seen so much talent in one person since I married Anne Bancroft. I’ve got to say that these are two great Anns, and I am glad that they hooked up together.” Mel Brooks "See the show… You really should. “Squeezebox” is the Marsh at its best: understated and brilliant." Doug Konecky, SF Theater Blog "Superb solo show squeezes out laughs, drama." Chad Jones, Theater Dogs Blog and SF Examiner Ann Randolph’s Squeeze Box is extended at The Marsh through December 14.
Produced Off-Broadway by the legendary Mel Brooks and the late Anne Bancroft, Squeeze Box tells the painfully funny story of Randolph’s crazy minimum wage life working the graveyard shift at a homeless shelter for mentally ill women even as she pretends to be a hugely successful ‘consultant’ to Harold, an impassioned accordionist and man of her dreams. It is through this unlikely cast of characters that she finds her own answers to life’s big questions.
