I have had the opportunity to work with Valerie Hager and I find her to be an exceptional and unique talent. Her discipline and commitment are fierce and total. Her lack of ego in service to finding the truth is admirable.

It is beyond rare to find an artist who is at once this gifted as a storyteller, with this level of craft and acting chops, who also has the power to write with such a visceral glow as to not simply deliver a monologue to an audience but to virtually bring them inside her own head to experience the internal dimensions of the monologue right along with her!
