NYC comedian Tanya O’Debra’s New York Innovative Theatre Award nominated solo show, RADIO STAR is being presented by the 2012 New Orleans Fringe Festival for its Louisiana debut. Performances are Wednesday, 11/14 @ 7pm, Friday, 11/16 @ 9pm, Saturday, 11/17 @ 11pm, Sunday, 11/18 @ 7pm at The Old Firehouse 720 Mandeville St. New Orleans, LA 70117. Tickets are $8 with the one-time purchase of a Fringe button ($3) will available online at http://www.nofringe.org/index.php.

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. Just like the golden age of radio, only dirtier. The play runs one hour with no intermission.

Radio Star won Best of the San Francisco Fringe Festival. It was nominated for Best English Language Production and Just For Laugh’s Best Comedy at the Montreal Fringe Festival. Published by Original works, it was also nominated for Outstanding Full Length Script, Outstanding Original Music, and Outstanding Actress in a Leading role at the New York Innovative Theater Awards. Most recently, Radio Star sold out every performance in advance at The Cincy Fringe Festival.

“Mesmerizing... a true gem and a must-see for all Fringe goers.” *****
Charlebois Post, Montreal

“Tanya O'Debra's smutty yet classy spoof of 1940s radio drama is the most theatrically accomplished show (writing and performance) I've seen yet at this year's Fringe.”
Montreal Gazette

“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, NYC
