There have been a few one-person shows in the past that I watched, but generally, I didn’t pay attention to it. The reason was because of the difficulty of distinguishing each character. Stephanie Andujar has done that through amazing voice acting and giving each character a unique personality and mannerisms that make it the best one person show I have ever seen.
If you are like me, you remember Stephanie Andujar from the movie Precious, and have always been amazed seeing her guest star in shows, whether it’s Orange is the New Black, or most recently on Blue Bloods. If you have never seen Stephanie Andujar in anything, and you have no idea about anything I just said, or who this person is, then be prepared to be amazed.
After watching all the episodes from seasons 1 and 2, I wanted to take a small dive into the mastermind behind the lovable characters (especially Uncle Patune and Sofrita, my two personal favorites of the show besides StephA herself). StephA’s one-woman show struck me as something special. I had to share the episodes with people to share the joy I feel watching the show.
Stephanie took time from her busy schedule to talk with me briefly via messages to answer a few questions that were on my mind. We cut right to the chase to dig deep into the mind of the talent known as StephA.
J.C: What motivated you to do one person shows?
StephA: Well, since I was already acting and did some film & tv work, my sister gave me an idea for putting together a One Woman Show of sorts to show my comedic side. I was originally thinking of the stage, but I wanted to reach the masses and decided to make a web series with me playing many different characters. Hence…StephA:One Woman Show was born.
J.C: Who was the most challenging character for you to play as? Also, who was the most fun to play as?
StephA: LoL That’s a great question! The thing I find challenging with my characters is changing in and out of costumes when I have like 10 characters in one scene! I always drive myself crazy when it comes to those scenes because I have to think of which character to start with and end with. That’s the crazy times lol. The most fun character I would say is Uncle Patune. Every time I get into character with him I can’t help but laugh lol that’s why he’s usually in the bloopers the most! LOL
J.C: What can we expect more of from the one Woman show?
StephA: I’m currently working on season 3 of StephA:One Woman Show and introducing a new character! So more craziness and laughs! Sure to be a good one!!
StephA went back to making season 3 after the conversation. I was so excited after she said that, it was all the questions I could ask after that because as a fan of the one-woman show, I wanted to see that notification that season three has been added on YouTube. I am reliving the first two seasons as I await the third season.
This is only the beginning of the one-woman show. Whether you are watching to see Sofrita and her never-ending adventures. Maybe you like watching Bony Day-Day get into deep trouble in utterly hilarious moments. I dare you to watch a moment with Uncle Patune and not laugh. The main star, of course, StephA has a journey of her own as she continues to chase dreams and live her life with some of the most hilariously unpredictable people around her.
Don’t forget to view this link and enjoy StephA: One Woman Show, exclusively on YouTube and watch seasons 1 and 2. Once you are done, the fun isn’t over yet, because of StephA: One Woman Show will be coming back soon with season 3. Stay tuned for what is sure to be an amazing season!
