Synopsis: From Comedy Central's South Park comes "The Woman of a Thousand Voices," Eliza Jane Schneider, in her wildy funny, thirty-four character solo performance. Freedome of Speech is a true story. Eliza Jane cashed in her assets, quit a lucrative job on an Emmy-winning sitcom, shaved her head and set off on a 317,000-mile cross-country spiritual quest in a second-hand ambulance. Eliza Jane stopped in at beauty parlors, swimming holes, bars, street corners ad churches, asking everyone she met along the way the question, ”What’s going on?” Freedome of Speech blends the immediacy of a documentary with the intimacy of Eliza Jane’s hilarious personal narrative to capture a muffled underlying voice of America that we won’t hear anywhere else.

What the Press is Saying:
 

"Astonishing transformations!"-The New York Times

 

"Captivating! A vivid aural photo album of America"-The New York Post

 

"Freedom of Speech,” was one of the festival’s most popular, drawing a hip, young crowd with her irreverent, confessional personality.” -Bruce Weber, The New York Times

 

"If Lily Tomlin and Anna Deavere Smith were to merge their talents, the result might be something like Eliza Jane Schneider’s Freedom of Speech, a dramatic tour of America and also a tour de force… A wondrous harmony of American voices pouring from a one-woman choir."-Adam Feldman, Time-Out New York & President of the New York Drama Critics’ Circle

 

Eliza Jane Schneider—Anna Deavere Smith crossed with Amy Sedaris—uncannily channels some 30 real-life Americans and their crazy-quilt stories in her tour-de-force one-woman show Freedom of Speech…Schneider doesn’t so much act as literally summon each person right before your eyes.” -Sean Kennedy, New York Magazine
