Lauren Weedman: Bust
"Breathtaking… Weedman is a female Robin Williams." L.A. Weekly
A hilarious, poignant and completely unforgettable performance, Bust goes behind bars and into the echoing chambers of Lauren Weedman’s punishing psyche. The former Daily Show correspondent reports from the Los Angeles penal system in a work that careens wildly between her (sometimes) paying work in Hollywood and her ongoing volunteer gig in the L.A. County Jail. The incarcerated women for whom she advocates, and the mixed motives that have brought Weedman to their door, are portrayed with humor, energy and biting self-indictment.
