About the Show

Singing the Diaphragm Blues and Other Sexual Cacophonies explores the tragic, hilarious, and baffling road of silence traveled by women in American culture. Looking back on the past and forward to the future, McCarthy finds herself faced with a profound yet common conundrum: How did American women get into this debilitating state, and what the hell can we do about it now? Weaving a tapestry of insights with wry humor, McCarthy unearths the intricate and dangerous power of silence in sexuality, gender, and the dance of everyday life. 

Reviews and Interviews

Tatian Christian, UT

"SINGING THE DIAPHRAGM BLUES IS AN EVENING OF EMPOWERMENT! Singing the Diaphragm Blues & Other Sexual Cacophonies is an engaging one-woman show written and performed by Rebecca L. McCarthy that recounts her own experiences being sexually assaulted, growing up as a woman in America, menopause, and all the things womanhood entails."

"I've enjoyed Rebecca Lea McCarthy's performances before, most recently in Arsenic and Old Lace at Lakewood Playhouse. In 2012, I nominated her "Doris" from Olympia Little Theatre's Same Time, Next Year for a Carvy." - Christian Carvajal
