Review On GLORIA


Vanessa Cate - Stage Raw

Registered Critic

The program does not note a director. Waller, a strong performer, could have used an outside eye to refine her performance. Still, her talent is apparent, and scenes of montage, dance choreography, film noir-style drama, and the use of props are exceptionally impressive for a one-person show in the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Vanessa Cate (they/them) is the Managing & Assigning Editor for Stage Raw and the former Editor-in-Chief for Vanessa is a performance artist, writer, and jack of all trades, and can be found on stage, in strange audiences, and in interesting situations. Apart from their work with Stage Raw since its inception, Vanessa is the Founder and Artistic Director of the feminist performance-coven known as TheatreWitch, as well as the fantasy dance group Cabaret le Fey. Vanessa co-produces True Crime in Los Angeles, and works with Butcher Bird Studios. Vanessa performs, writes, directs, and generally creates however and whenever they can.
