Lisa Verlo performs HOLLYWOODN’T a solo show and personal journey across Hollywood’s unsettling sexual landscape, directed by and developed with Jessica Lynn Johnson.

A musical memoir told with candor and insight into the life of an actress before women dared to speak up. With original songs cowritten with Frank Simes, Musical Director for The Who, Lisa Verlo brings humor and a light heart to a heavy subject. Creative visuals and video projections add to the multimedia recounting of her experiences on the casting couches of LA.

Hollywoodn’t was featured, on Wednesday February 13, as part of SOLOFEST 2019 at the Whitefire Theatre, the largest solo theatre festival on the West Coast .

“She has that rare gift of connecting to the audience on an almost cellular level. She is fierce and brave and wise and absolutely hilarious…Bravo!!!”
– Samantha Simmonds-Ronceros – NoHo Arts Disctrict

“She speaks candidly about sex and her own sexuality. Although the subject of abuse is no laughing matter, Lisa’s use of body language (and “talking” body parts) keeps the audience enthralled.”
– Laura Voeth – Tolucan Times

"This is the third version of Lisa Verlo’s one woman and show and the best by far! She handles the challenging material with depth and humor. The witty writing and her ability to play different characters with very different accents was impressive. I hope she keeps working on this show as I would definitely love to see it again! Bravo Lisa, it takes an enormous amount of energy, time and effort to put on a one woman show and hers was entertaining from start to finish!"
