ABOUT THE SHOW
“Do The Voice” is a musical comedy starring Lori Alan as a self-absorbed but lovable 50-year-old famous voice over actress struggling to find true love and relevancy in the unforgiving world of Hollywood. Think “Fleabag” meets “Crazy- Ex Girlfriend” with a smattering of “The Comeback”
Lori, still in stirrups at the GYN is asked, yet again to do the voice of her famous cartoon character, Dolly the Dolphin during her annual pap smear.
Arriving home thirty minutes late for date night with her much younger boyfriend Andre, ready for “salad duty”, she finds him packing up his last box dumping her unexpectedly. A hysterical Lori chases after him in the middle of the street throwing her salad tongs at the back of his car.
Later that day her fan obsessed, millennial ‘sexually ambiguous' neighbor returns them and insists on blowing a hit of his joint into her mouth to to make her feel better. Finding out she booked a national commercial for an online dating service adds insult to injury. As her newly single reality sets in, Lori smashes her remote against her recently disconnected cable box and later screws the Time Warner guy.
