Award-winning solo performer Carla Delaney took audiences by storm with her first hit solo show Voices. Gaining rave reviews, the show ranked in the Top 5 for solo shows at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and has sold out nationwide. Nominated as Performer of the Decade by Broadway World Los Angeles, Delaney is back with a new show for our time!

Worth It follows Casey, a talented singer, who is content to sing back-up when life beckons her to take the lead! Raised to think that pinching a penny is practical, her greed spills over into unexpected areas of her life. When Casey stumbles upon a ‘bank of the future’, with chests full of conscientious cabaret singers instead of cash, she begins to wonder if her self-esteem is the source of her net worth.

Dynamic Delaney skillfully plays over 40 characters in this fast-paced comedy, featuring original music and retro videos that are campy enough to remind us of MTV’s best days.

Carla Delaney is an award-winning Los Angeles-based actress, voice-over, and playwright who has appeared in television, film, animation, video games, and commercials around the world; notably on Family Guy, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live !, The New Looney Tunes Show, Boss Baby, Our Cartoon President and Captain Marvel.
