|Molly Montgomery, IMTA Alum, Playwright, Actress|
IMTA Molly Montgomery is getting rave reviews for her one-woman show! Molly is an alum of the 2005 IMTA in Los Angeles. Her show premiered in New York City at the Third United Solo Theater Festival at Theater Row off Time Square.
According to Michael Miller, New York Arts, "Molly Montgomery has taken on one of the most difficult jobs in theater or in any of the narrative arts, creating a story about people who are essentially good, decent people—innocent of any morally repellant scandals, but not immune to their share of insanity and dipsomania, which are benevolently tolerated and supported within family circles....The color of her language, the engaging detail of the narrative, the perception of her character studies were all on the highest level, without being intellectual or rarified. In fact everything was within the accessible boundaries of popular entertainment, if more precise and challenging in its frankness. Montgomery said that her aim was to make people laugh and cry in the right proportions. What more can a playwright aspire to? And Molly Montgomery succeeded on a big Texan scale, with genius."
