“Joan Kane is a powerhouse. Having lived the experience, she now relives it on stage. Her portrayal of each character is so real that you forget she is only one person.” Matt D’Silva in AllAboutSolo.com, October 1, 2019

“Love heals even when the hope seems gone. When the lights went to blackout after her last brilliant and hopeful line, she came out to do her a bow to a standing ovation. Three times.”
Malini Singh McDonald in Malinism, September 30, 2019

We are in pre-production on Bird Dance, a short film written and to be directed by Joan Kane about one night’s happenings during the depths of the COVID 19 quarantine when a mockingbird sang it’s way into our hearts.

The film will feature Taylor Graves, Randall Rodriquez and J. Dolan Byrnes. Producers include Bruce A! Kraemer and Devorah Palladino. Nicholas Palladino is the director of photography and will edit. The costumes are by Cat Fisher and the composer is Adam Howard Schneider.
