 The first two weekends in November, the Shadowbox Theatre will host the SoloMania Festival (www.solomaniafest.com). SoloMania offers New Orleans theater lovers a menu of solo performances, showcasing the diversity of perspectives and solo techniques currently enlivening New Orleans stages. The solo shows reflect a range of sensibilities, including performances for late-night, adult, and child audiences. SoloMania promotes experimentation and risk among writers, solo performers, and directors. It supports the development and presentation of new one-woman, one-man, one-person shows. SoloMania will present these performers in back-to-back solo shows in a variety of styles:  including comedy, drama, puppetry, cabaret, monologue, storytelling, burlesque, and intermedia.

Earlier this year, several New Orleans performers got together and agreed to share the expense of producing a mini-fest themselves. The line-up* includes Bremner Fletcher Duthie, Veronica Russell, Frederick Mead, Harry Mayronne, Diana Shortez, Karen Shields, Jennifer Pagan, Amy Woodruff, Enzo Lombard, Brady McKellar, Claudia Baumgarten, Pandora Andrea Gastelum, Brad McEntire, and Casey Groves. Collectively, these performers have garnered a dazzling array of awards and international credits. More than performers, they are also writers, directors, musicians, drama teachers, puppeteers, and costume designers. (*Performers listed as of September 9)

With a generous grant from the Big Easy Foundation for Entertainment Development and Education, SoloMania also offers workshops in developing solo performances. Students of these workshops will present their final works in the SoloMania Festival. For more information about workshops, contact Jennifer Pagan at (504) 235-1667.
 
WHEN: Saturday Nov 2 through Sunday Nov 10.  (Note: Dark on Monday Nov 4)
Detailed schedule will be available in the SoloMania Festival Guide in many local businesses.
