About The Root of the Soul:




Ms Malone. Please know your delivery in your deeply soul-stirring one woman show profoundly nurtures,  nourishes, heals, elevates and renews the spirit. I was touched in a multitude of ways that drew joy, tears, intrigue, empathy, laughter, & yearning for more.

You so skillfully crafted the many characters you brought to life in your outstanding portrayal of youth and progressive agedness in real community. The scope, range, depth, width & breadth of delivery from the story itself & to your timing, acting, vocals, humor, multiple roles & words all combined to stroke and move our emotions,  expand our faith, impact our gratitude...from inside out, sole to soul, root to fruit.

I thank you immensely for stepping out, stepping up & allowing us to step into the invisible world that binds us all. Thank you for showing us how to live together & thrive through sameness & difference.  I express only the tip of the iceberg, as your work for me, spans the sunrise, the sunset,  the horizon &  celestial covering, while you guide us on an inward journey of peace. I remain your raving fan, anxious for more...full from the root of my soul. ;)
