Synopsis

The Wasp Woman is a campy adaptation of the 1959 B-movie of the same name produced by Roger Corman. The 35-minute satirical drama is a cautionary tale of a corporate cosmetics queen, Janice Starlin, who will do whatever it takes to stay youthful and relevant – no matter how horrific the costs.

Press Reviews

The standout performance is from Tara Langella, who finds that balance of melodramatic camp and horror/suspense acting found in films like Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.” The acting is great and reminiscent of those cheesy movies spoofed by Mystery Science Theater 3000.

About the Voiceover Repertory Company (VO Rep)

VO Rep is a brand-new audio entertainment company created to provide pop audio drama with a fresh and unique take, for discerning audiences seeking value for their attention. Each podcast-sized episode will feature an adapted or original story full of action, wit, and color – a lot of fun in a small package, "snack food for your ears." VO Rep plans to release four full audio productions annually, with smaller works interspersed throughout the year.

VO Rep coined our tagline "Snack food for your ears" to communicate we will create a pop sensibility and immersive productions.  With an emphasis on creating a full cinematic experience for our listeners, we will focus on shorter stories, adapting existing material with a fun and irreverent spin.  With The Wasp Woman, we pride ourselves on keeping the retro stylings of 1959 original, while adding a modern and campy take.
