• A Transcriber's Tale


  • Written/performed by Joanna Parson
    Directed by Aimee Todoroff
    Musical direction and additional arrangement by Drew Wutke

    Welcome to a bustling transcription office in New York City in 2001, where typists are busy listening to — and typing out — raw interviews for pulpy television shows and other mass media. The ultimate eavesdropper in a storm of sound bites, cliches and media coverage of September 11,  Joanna Parson presents a unique musical monologue that shows you what happens when a young woman with a sense of humor and a Guild guitar tries to keep her sanity and heart intact in the center of the news cycle.

    “Beautiful, funny and fascinating.  Joanna Parson is a wonderfully talented and gifted storyteller, who deserves to be seen and heard. Don’t miss A TRANSCRIBER’S TALE...a love letter to the city of New York.”  Dan Ruth, lahiddengems.com https://bit.ly/4blvrfH

    "A gifted storyteller, holding her guitar not as a shield but rather an offering. A gift. It’s a gorgeous gorgeous show. A delight. And Joanna Parson is absolutely brilliant." Samantha Simmons Ronceros, nohoartsdistrict.com https://nohoartsdistrict.com/a-transcribers-tale-review/

    "This show made me laugh and think… and also made me ache with memories of 911 and how we all processed it. But it wasn’t only about 911, it was a thoroughly fresh, honest, and specific charting of a young artist’s life in NYC that I think will be relatable to people of all ages." Cindy Chupack, Executive Producer/Writer Sex and the City, Modern Family
