Inner Voices: Solo Musicals at the Zipper Factory Theatre

Inner Voices: Solo Musicals at the Zipper Factory Theatre Victoria Clark in TRES NIÑAS by Ellen Fitzhugh and Michael John LaChiusa is extraordinary! Barbara Walsh in A THOUSAND WORDS COME TO MIND by Michele Lowe and Scott Davenport Richards is extraordinary! The music is extraordinary! The stories are extraordinary! Okay, I didn't care for Jennifer Daminao in ALICE UNWRAPPED by Michele Lowe and Scott Davenport Richards, nor did I care much for the story (I saw her in Next to Normal and didn't care for her there either- she just has some growing to do I think). Victoria Clark was breathtaking. At times she was a young child and at others a world weary single mother making all the wrong choices. I kept thinking, my God, Margaret Johnson is sexy. Barbara Walsh told the story of discovering her dying mother's past and passions. The music was transportive and so interesting, quiet and intimate, yet uplifting and rapturous. You have just three more chances to see this extraordinary work. Go!
