In a show produced by Anne Bancroft, (“The Graduate”, “The Miracle Worker”), comedian/writer/actress Ann Randolph skillfully weaves together her experiences working in a women’s homeless shelter with her love affair with the accordionist of her dreams in this new Off-Broadway play. Using her elastic face and acrobatic voice, Randolph brings to life her tragicomic journey of discovery and self-acceptance. Squeeze Box illuminates the dignity and grace in unusual people and places and leads us to think upon the relationship between where we are and where we expect to be.
