Press from the EST/LA Production (2017)

"Ms. Talman proves once again the value of intimate live theatre in a way that no recorded media can. Woody’s Order! is a magnum opus given a luminous tour de force performance."

Great interview with Ann Talman about Woody's Order!  at EST/LA.

Another great interview with Ann Talman about Woody's Order!  at EST/LA.

"This true, and truly astonishing, story celebrates humanity and the way that we all connect along the way.”

"Clearly, this tender story has special meaning to playwright/solo actor Ann Talman, who lived it and now shares her experiences with the audience. It is a joy to see her transition with ease and occasional humor from one character to another.”

"Talman, an accomplished performer, physically and verbally manifests every character in her story—with a succinct economy that never inhibits the flow of her narrative.”

"You could say Ann Talman has been working on her one-woman show, 'Woody’s Order!' since birth. 'Or you could say before birth, actually,' said the actress known for roles on 'Seinfeld,' 'General Hospital' and as Elizabeth Taylor’s daughter in Broadway’s 'The Little Foxes.'”

"It’s an evening of intense emotion as Talman surveys a tumultuous past.... What pulls her, and us, through it all is not only the great love she has for her brother, but the support he gives her and the sense of home she feels with him.”

A review of Woody's Order!  at Pittsburgh Playhouse.

"Hopefully, this wonderful play will make its way around the country. I especially recommend this show for people with family members and friends who have special needs, as the show will be highly relatable and comforting.”

“I’ve always wanted to do it in Pittsburgh, because most of it takes place in Pittsburgh,” she said. “A lot of the scenes are in Deerfield Manor in Upper St. Clair, at our house.”
