Watch (but mainly listen) as Tanya O’Debra lends her voice to ten different characters while simultaneously staging silly sound effects in this filthy, filthy, dirty 1940’s radio detective spoof.
“An absurd cross between John Waters and Raymond Chandler…Radio Star is a raunchy blast” Flavorpill NYC
“Side-splittingly hilarious… the best one-woman show I’ve seen” Three Weeks, Edinburgh
“Clever, original, and unflinchingly funny.” Broadway World
“There can be no doubting O’Debra’s talent: she’s got a vocal arsenal that puts Saturday Night Live’s Kristin Wiig to shame.” New York Press
“With its innovative concept and visual, descriptive script, Radio Star is a goofy take on the classic detective tale, brimming with vulgar tongue-in-cheek humor and colorful characters.”
New Theatre Corps
[Tanya O’Debra] “is a whiz with the hard-boiled noir zinger.” Cultural Capital
