Nicole Travolta is Doing Alright

Nicole Travolta

Nicole Travolta does not hold back in her solo show, Nicole Travolta is Doing Alright. Debt, divorce, and lots of drama fill the stage of this show that takes audiences on the journey of a woman who triumphs over many hardships, including the vice of shopping and spending.

Travolta comes from a well-known show business family but as she puts it, her mom married "the poor Travolta". Her dad was relatively frugal and her mom was the complete opposite. In fact, her mom's love language was shopping. This division would eventually lead to their divorce. By this time, Travolta was accustomed to dealing with her emotions through shopping. Her mom had modeled this behavior, which became part of her identity. She would continue this practice long after she left home eventually racking up debt from over twelve creditors.

Although the storyline deals with serious issues, Travolta is light, energetic and humorous. Her performance is engaging, holding the audience's attention as she comedically tells of her wild spray-tan sessions, shopping expeditions, and dealing with her family and ex-husband. She sporadically throws in hilarious expressions of celebrities. The sound and visual design by Scott Bogle work harmoniously with the show.

Nicole Travolta is Doing Alright is a fun-filled evening that gives hope to many struggling financially and emotionally. Travolta shows all her numbers in this intimate performance, truly giving her all and inspiring others.

Nicole Travolta is Doing Alright is playing until February 24. Try to see her in action--you'll surely be entertained!
