Three women. Three short true tales of adventure and courage. Each story has been a one-woman show in the past. “Divas in Danger” emphasizes change and unstoppable courage, expressed with humor and drama:
Actress/author Debra Ehrhardt knows “Jamaica Farewell” is more than a song. With the unwitting help of a CIA agent, she risked her life escaping Jamaica during a violent revolution and she fulfilled her dream of coming to America.
Actress/author Brenda Adelman‘s father shot and killed her mother, and then he quickly took a new bride – her mother’s sister. Her life lesson was to forgive the unforgivable.
On a less dramatic scale, although equally shocking, author/storyteller Mariana Williams undergoes budget plastic surgery — with a doctor practicing out of his suburban home in Park City, Utah.
Three condensed versions of three solo shows, promises a compelling evening at the Nakono Theater. The Washington Post says, “Debra Ehrhardt possesses a rare ability to mesmerize.” Of Brenda Adelman, the San Diego Examiner writes, “Adelman ends on a positive note…Brenda, her family and the audience become a life’s lesson in forgiveness, love and acceptance.” Chris Carpenter’s column, Curtain’s Up, in the Grunion Gazette writes, “This talented trio relates personal tales that skillfully manage to be both harrowing and hilarious, sometimes simultaneously. The full house responded enthusiastically to ‘Divas in Danger’ and it’s well worth checking out…Williams has a winning, personable storytelling style for sure!”
