WORTH IT to be Presented at Santa Monica Playhouse

Award Winning solo performer, Carla Delaney, took audiences by storm with her first smash hit solo show Voices. Winning rave reviews, the show ranked in the Top 5 Solo Shows at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and played to sold out crowds nationally. Nominated as Performer of the Decade by Broadway World Los Angeles, Delaney is back with a new show for our time!

Worth It follows Casey, a talented songstress, who's content to sing back-up when life beckons her to take the lead! Raised to think penny-pinching is practical, her stinginess is spilling into unexpected areas of her life. When Casey stumbles into a "Bank of the Future", with vaults filled with conscientious cabaret singers instead of cash, she begins to question whether her self-worth is at the root of her net worth.

The dynamic Delaney skillfully plays over 40 characters in this fast paced comedy, featuring original music and retro videos campy enough to harken back to the best days of MTV.
