Lanny Harrison is a one-woman theater whose offbeat, vaudeville-tinged, jazzy, experimental
pieces are always sassy and satirical.
John Sutton-Smith, Barndall Art Park, Los Angeles
From the beginning, her high level of concentration and incandescent energy was mesmerizing.
Harrison is supremely fluent in body language, able to speak volumes with the tilt
of her head or the curl of her lip... What really made Harrison's performance a success
was her ability to stay completely in character, down to the smallest detail. By
the end – the most difficult trick a performer can pull off – she had created a near
perfect illusion and made it look like child's play.

Lanny Harrison has talent to burn... In her most congenial moods, she is Rita Hayworth
in exaggeration...something beyond cabaret and theater and stand-up commedienneship.
A landscape composed of poetry, movement, songs and tales... I loved it.
Wendy Perron, Soho Weekly News
Harrison invests the characters with an awesome, fascinating power. This one... swoops,
cackles and intones like some mythical Garuda-witch... No one-paragraph blurb could
possibly prepare you for something so totally unique, it was unlike anything you
had ever seen before.

When Lanny Harrison appeared as a mysterious white-robed figure in a window of the
Winter Garden, it was easy to imagine this apparition as a divine messenger summoning
Joan of Arc to her destiny.
