Ana Egge

VIDEO 1 : VIDEO 2

When Ana Egge got bit by the music bug as a teenager, she took matters into her own hands, building her own guitar, and moving to Austin, TX to observe, absorb and take musical risks. The striking depth and unusual maturity of her singing, playing, and songwriting got her noticed, and she recorded her first album, River Under the Road (1997) with the legendary western swing band, Asleep At The Wheel. The Austin Music Awards named her “Best Singer/Songwriter” and “Best Folk Artist.” Over the ensuing years and 8 subsequent CDs, Ana has made good on that promising debut. She has worked with producers Martin Terefe, Jason Mercer, Joel Plaskett, Steve Earle, and Stewart Lerman, and recorded full albums with The Stray Birds and The Sentimentals. Now, in 2018, she has released White Tiger, her tenth album, a new batch of Egge originals of such singularly articulate and affecting honesty and sensitivity, as to once again deserve USA Today’s accolade, “[Ana] can write and sing rings around” her contemporaries.

Ana Egge grew up with parents who “dropped out,” choosing to raise four girls in a lovingly cobbled together combination of a small farmhouse on the North Dakota plains, a bus on the California Coast, and a hot springs commune in rural New Mexico, scraping together dimes and hand-me-downs. Ana learned that her life was truly hers to create. “We were always the outsiders,” she says. “I was taught how to shoot a gun and how to enjoy alfalfa sprouts and tofu. I ran around barefoot and learned to ride a motorcycle when I was 5. I grew up with all the time and space in the world.” Given her unconventional upraising, it’s not surprising that Ana has since been plotting her own journey, confident, fearless, and uncompromising. She’s been around the horn of life’s experiences, having forsaken the Great Plains for Sunset Park in Brooklyn, and gotten married and become a mother, but she’s never lost touch with the free-spirited childhood and the Western landscape that formed her.

Randy Otto as Winston Churchill
– One Man Play: The Blitz

With over 4 decades of formidable academic and performance passion, audiences experience an astonishingly nuanced, humorous, witty, REAL Winston Churchill with gravitas and grit as Randy Otto shatters the imaginary 4th wall, transporting your audience from tears to laughter and back again.

Jonathan Sandys Great-Grandson of Sir Winston Churchill
“I have heard many people attempt to play the role of my great-grandfather, but without hesitation, Randy Otto takes the role to a whole new level. Randy does not attempt to be Winston Churchill, Randy Otto IS Winston Churchill.

Tim Riley – Executive Director National Churchill Museum – Fulton, MO
“Randy Otto is to Winston Churchill as Hal Holbrook is to Mark Twain.”

Hal Holbrook
“I'm glad you are pursuing your show on the road and enjoying it. That is all to the good for you and your audiences. We have a mission Randy. We may not play the enormous crowds, like the rock 'n' roll type shows do, but we have our place in the history of The Road.”

Synopsis Winston Churchill: The Blitz
Randy Otto portrays Churchill’s unwavering, audacious belief that if the British People were simply trusted with the truth – no matter how bad things got – they would only get stronger and more resilient.

Act I
From his study at Chartwell, Winston Churchill recounts his courageous 1930’s journey from historical footnote to the most beloved leader and statesman in recorded history. In the 1930’s Churchill’s warnings about Hitler’s Nazi Germany are ignored. Winston’s peers along with the press instead conspire to attack and malign Churchill’s character. Marginalizing Winston as “brilliant, but flawed,” the media attempt to convince the British people to write-off Churchill as a “has been whose star has dimmed.” Churchill fights back, resourcefully utilising words as weapons: beguiling humor, rapier wit, incisive insight and facts. Finally, just as all seems lost Winston Churchill becomes Prime Minister. You are there.

Act II
Air raid sirens wail. Night-time. Autumn. 1940. London Rooftop. Unprepared for war, the British finally turn to Churchill who – as in the days of old - calls the British People to arms, mobilizing the English language and sending it into battle. Just in time, Churchill’s timeless words ring true inspiring the British people to greatness.
When the all-clear sounds Winston rushes to the mayhem iconic cigar in hand; the reassuring “V” for Victory flashed with a fierce smile. Winston calls it “Touching The Troops.”

The evening finishes with “Ask Winston” an audience-interactive opportunity to query Churchill…an exhilarating “one-on-one” with the Prime Minister. Audience favorite Winston Churchill: The Blitz premiered April 2017 at the San Angelo Performing Arts Center in San Angelo, TX to rave reviews and continues to tour Theaters, Performing Arts Centers, University & College stages throughout the United States and Internationally
