When I was growing up I always wanted to be someone. Now I realize I should have been more specific.
1994. TALKING LOUD!
Talking Loud! was a show I put together that showcased solo artists. We all did original material.
Talking Loud! was a monthly event at Surf Reality on the lower east side in NYC.
1995. CALLING ON GOD
This was my first full-length solo play.
1996. EVEN SUPERMODELS GET THE BLUES
1997. EVEN SUPERMODELS GET THE BLUES
1997. I ALWAYS CRY AT WEDDINGS
New York International Fringe Festival
Womenkind’s Women on the Fringe
Finally, Jill Dalton’s “I Always Cry at Weddings” was a wickedly arch comedy with women’s sometimes pathological cattiness as its target. As an attendee of a friend’s nuptials, Dalton’s unceasing snipes a the figures, fortunes, and futures reaches the shrill at times, but it never off-putting. Her point about an inherent self-loathing at the root of it is always clear. And as a performer, Dalton was a cyclone of neurotic tics, all of them quite funny.

And these short works gave way to my full-length solo plays, CALLING ON GOD, MY LIFE IN THE TRENCHES, and LIZZIE BORDEN LIVE! (See other highlights)
