Chocolate Confessions: One-Woman Musical Comedy
Chocolate Confessions is the deliciously funny one-woman musical comedy about love, life, and chocolate that answers these questions and more. The show has played to rave reviews and sold-out performances in more than 25 cities across the country.
The show has played in theaters and at festivals and conventions across the country to great acclaim for over 12 years, and the show is always being updated with new and uproarious songs and comedy routines. This family-friendly show appeals to all ages, and is very popular with fans of musical theater and clever comedy as Joan discloses the secrets of the amazing world of chocolate through an array of Broadway show tunes and pop song parodies. She entices the audience with her wonderful skill of quick character change (from squeaky utterances to Texas drawl) and her beautiful singing voice.

Performed by a polished professional, the show was held over for an astonishing 21 weeks at the Portland Art Museum’s Commandery Theater, and played for another 10 weeks at the Northwest’s beautiful World Trade Center Theater
