Art school, modern womanhood, hilarious moments from comi-tragic relationships that almost existed…followed up with, “what’s next, world?” Lanessa Long uses songs and stories encapsulating the melodramatic nature of being 22 and on the cliffs of severe unknowns. Filled with spicy, fluid piano riffs, and slick, character-filled vocals, this show is a funny, witty, insightful, and poignant display of finding identity amidst angst.
I premiered my first solo show, a musical comedy called "Nobody's Really Helped Me" at California Institute of the Arts in 2018, and have since put it up at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, the Curious Comedy Theatre in Portland, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland, the LA Women’s Theatre Festival, and the United Solo Theatre Festival, which is the world’s largest solo theatre festival, in NYC. It has been awarded The Best of the Broadwater (HFF 18), the Best Improv Award (USTF 18) and nominated for the Larry Cornwall Award for Musical Excellence (HFF 18).
