Mosaic
Book and Lyrics by Cheri Steinkellner
Music and Lyrics by Georgia Stitt
Mosaic is a multi-media, real-time half hour in the life - and on the MacBook - of Ruth, a woman vlogging at the crossroads of birth, death, love and Diet Coke.

Whida Peru: Resurrection Triangle
Book and Lyrics by David Simpatico
Music by Josh Schmidt
Whida Peru brings us into the chambers of a very special creature, as she is forced to evaluate the quality of life, death and what lies in between for her.

Both works directed by Jonathan Butterell.

    Unhappy Medium Searches for Clarity

    April 8, 2010: Whida Peru, the flamboyant figure in the lace bodysuit and flowery silk wrap, is having serious boyfriend trouble. Her beloved Juannie is not communicating as he used to. Despite Whida’s effusive endearments and desperate entreaties — not to mention the new outfit she just bought him — Juannie shows marked signs of wanting to leave Whida altogether. “You must let me go,” he cries, again and again.

    Inner Voices: Solo Musicals

    April 8, 2010: The intensity of talent permeating the two one act musicals that comprise Inner Voices: Solo Musicals, now being presented by Primary Stages at 59E959 Theaters, is decidedly impressive. Indeed the work of the show's two stars, Heidi Blickenstaff in Act I's Mosaic by Cheri Steinkellner and Georgia Stiff, and Judith Blazer in Act II's Whida Peru -Resurrection Tangle by David Simpatico and Josh Schmidt, is what truly makes this unusual evening worth catching.

    April 8, 2010: With the solo play metamorphosing from an occasional alternative to more populated stage presentations to a virtual flood, apparently there are those who think there's a place for the solo musical. Sheree Renee Scott's Everyday Rapture review of Off-Broadway production), which is making the leap to Broadway as a result of the Roundabout's need to quickly replace its aborted revival of Lips Together, Teeth Apart, is essentially a solo musical though there are 3 backup singers and a brief appearance by another performer to give this a more full bodied flavor. It also happens to be a charming little show, featuring a big talent and with an engaging story.

    Inner Voices: Solo Musicals

    Matthew Murray

    April 8, 2010: Loneliness in the presence of others - whether a group or just one other - is one of humankind’s most peculiar and potentially debilitating feelings. As fodder for a musical, especially one told in the currently popular stage vernacular of tuneful discord, it conjures up images of one person’s songs clashing with the crowd, uniting only in harmony at the show’s triumphant climax. But how can writers communicate this basic, universal idea with only a single person onstage? The new evening of Inner Voices: Solo Musicals, at Primary Stages, attempts to answer this question. And it succeeds only about 25 percent of the time.

    April 8, 2010: Last night I caught "Inner Voices: Solo Musicals" at 59E59. As the umbrella title indicates, the show is made up of two solo pieces, "Mosaic" and "Whida Peru: Resurrection Tangle." Each was a relatively short one-act, but I've seen nine-hour shows that felt zippier than this 100-minute evening.
