THEATER REVIEW: Moxie’s “Freedom Of Speech” at the Diversionary

You know her voice (or rather, voices) even if you don’t know her name. She gave voice to most of the women of “South Park.” She was the wacked-out lab assistant Liza on “Beckman’s World” and the voice of Australian pelicans and a turtle or two in “Finding Nemo.”

Now Moxie Theatre brings us Eliza Jane Schneider live in “Freedom Of Speech,” a performance piece about the Americans she met on a 10-year odyssey driving a used ambulance through the United States, in search of opinions and interesting dialects to listen to. “Freedom Of Speech” plays through Aug. 11 at Diversionary Theatre.
