Rhonda Badonda: The Adventures of a Girl with a Pain in Her Brain

Written & Performed by Rhonda S. Musak & Directed by Gareth Hendee
2 Performances: April 9

"Compelling…this one-woman performance is at times humorous, at times heartbreaking…ultimately inspiring."
John Jane, Review Vancouver

Presented by RVCCArts (solo show) at The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College, 118 Lamington Road, Branchburg, NJ 08876 for 2 performances Tuesday, April 9 at 1 PM & 7 PM.

Nash Theatre – seating is onstage, theatre-style.

Audiences will venture with Rhonda inside her brain, a bizarro-world terrain that shape-shifts continually leaving her lost, confused and ultimately more and more determined to get to the bottom of what's wrong with her. The woman who solves this mystery as she diagnoses Rhonda’s learning disabilities – learning disabilities that 99.9% of people do not know exist – also holds the key to Rhonda’s healing and a future filled with possibility. The treatment that Rhonda is given is an extremely powerful but little-known sound-based therapy employing the music of Mozart: The Tomatis Method. Those who have experienced the Tomatis Method have ultimately found it to be enormously effective and completely life-changing.

"Beautiful…a credit to the solo show format. Rhonda Musak…fills the stage with motion and personality. She slips into her many characters with ease…lovingly crafted and portrayed…a story she tells with glowing wit and humor. Rhonda Badonda shines in its expression of the beauty and strangeness of the mind." Plank Magazine
