Special Event Show:

INAPPROPRIATE IN ALL THE RIGHT WAYS

Featuring Ann Randolph.

Show Description:

Inappropriate In All The Right Ways Takes The Audience On An Audacious, Disastrous And Glorious Ride That Culminates In Audience Members Taking The Stage.
What if our tragedies were our greatest triumphs? Our public self was our most private and the worst and the best moments of our lives turned out to be the same?
Join Ann Randolph in a unique theatrical experience where sharing her story, from never paying rent by living in boats, tents and mental institutions to hooking up with Mel Brooks for an off-Broadway run, invites you to experience and express the miraculous in your own.
As Randolph has taken INAPPROPRIATE across the country, countless people, red, blue, old, young, right, wrong, short, tall — people different from each other in every discernible way — share, accept and embrace what makes us all of us human.

 

Ticket price: 
Free for all workshop attendees
$20 GA, $45 Dinner + Reserved seating (in front of house**)

"Ann Randolph is a multi-tiered invitation and adventure in interiority, grief, healing; and her teaching touches a part of my heart that brings me to my knees…laughing, sometimes crying. Ann is a master teacher." - ALANIS MORISSETTE, SINGER, SONGWRITER, AUTHOR


ABOUT ANN RANDOLPH

Ann is an award-winning writer and performer. Her current solo show, Inappropriate in All the Right Ways, has been described by The Huffington Post as "a show like no other.” After taking the audience on an audacious, disastrous and glorious ride, Ann invites audience members to take the stage for an unforgettable evening.

Her show, Loveland, played for two years straight in San Francisco where it won the SF Weekly Award for Best Solo Show and garnered the SF Bay Critic’s Award for Best Original Script. Loveland also played to sold out audiences in LA and won the LA Weekly award for Best Solo Show. After the show, audience members would wait in the lobby to share with her their experiences of loss and grief, themes touched on in the show with absurdity and candor. In response, Ann created a unique theatrical experience at the Arena Stage in Washington, DC where she held a post-show interactive writing workshop on grief and loss.

Limited to 18 students

Tuition: $350 ($325 early bird special for registering by 9/9/19)
