• Betsy Moore is a gutsy, solid, actress, intelligent, hilarious and quite frankly perfect as Lolly, the desperate housewife - LA Theatre Review
  • Moore is a bit of an inspiration - Stage and Cinema
  • Moore’s portrayal has a girlish cheerfulness, even when suffering the angst and rage of discovering her beloved is schtupping around the town with male hustlers - Stage and Cinema
  • She ranges all over the stage, showing humor, rage and sexual fantasy with equal aplomb. By the time she gains the courage to leave her robotic hubby, the audience is totally behind her -
  • Moore is perfect, wearing clown-ish make-up to convey the façade beneath which she hides her real desires and appearing at all times to just barely contain her fury. - LAist
  • What's incredible about the play and Moore's performance is that it manages to convey the very real horror of a future devoid of possibilities with almost slapstick humor. - LAist
  • Agatha's every poetical line was delivered by Moore in a hoarse voice laced with comedic innuendos that recalled Phyllis Diller, - LA Weekly

Betsy Moore

After earning her BA in theatre arts, Betsy Moore performed with Shakespeare Santa Cruz. Her career in Southern CA started with the role of Connie in Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding, leading to several stints in improv theatre. Work with experimental writer/director John Sinner led to successful productions at the New York and Amsterdam Fringe Festivals. Among her recent films, she is especially proud of her work in Sissy, a stunning short directed by Bonnie Root, and was awarded best supporting actress for her work in Light as a Feather. She played Joan in groundbreaking Bill and Joan at Sacred Fools followed by several performances at Son of Semele including the well reviewed and honored Love and Information.
