One Woman Show, another hit from the Fringe Festival, was part of the Diesel Playhouse’s Best of the Fringe. The production is the brain-child of comedy writers Daniel and Steven Shehori and Marco Timpano.

This production is a very clever idea that doesn’t quite make it in translation to the stage. The very straight guy’s guy Timpano portrays Eileen Louise Kennedy, a supposed female actor who has a string of solo shows to her credit.

The idea of a man spouting the intimate secrets of a woman without any female mannerisms is a brilliant conceit. It places her words about PMS, the Fat Pass and Cosmo magazine into an entirely different context. As a woman listening to Eileen’s monologue, I felt a real sense of recognition coupled with a squeamish feeling that men could delve into the feminist mystique with such effrontery.

The major problem is Timpano. He is just not a smooth enough actor to carry this off.
