Roz Cohn - 'I was in, I got taken, I finally left, and why' - Cabaret Comedy style

Passing along another vocal public announcement in Hollywood :)

Former long time Scientologist and film and stage actress Roslyn Cohn ( aka Roz Cohn ) recently made a very public announcement against Scientology in this very funny and sometimes poignant workshop performance last month at the Academy for New Musical Theatre Performers Workshop Cabaret's 2013 production.

Though the audio quality is poor at times, this video is really worth watching because I know you all will get a kick out of it. With a piano playing in the background, Roz tells about her 'ruin' and all the money she spent to train to become a Clear ( mild $ compared to some who went OT but shocking to the audience!). She also sings funny lyrics she wrote about Scientology to some memorable songs of the past and it was terrific to listen to someof what we all know put to song! It's probably the first time a musical comedy solo performance has been done which incorporates info to educate the audience on Fair Game, how dangerous Scientology is, how Celebrity Centre members and staff suck actors in, how auditing and the e-meter really works, and that Ron is a Con :).

Roz is hoping to make this into a one-woman show someday and this was the workshop debut. I hope so, too.

I'm also posting this to show support for her courage in standing up to the cult in Hollywood

Sounds like the audio was coming from the house PA and captured to the camera. When the audience laughs, it wipes out the weaker performer audio. Better to develop a transcript and put captions on the video (Youtube supports captions). Wondering if Mizz Cohn has a script or is she "winging it"? Easier to do the captions from a script and I messaged her with that request.

I believe there was a general script she wrote and acted off of but there was probably some improve involved there. I've been told that the original script is being amended with more funny stuff!

I emailed Roz and she gave me this response.

"Thank you so very much xxxxxxxx! I'm shocked by the incredible response I'm getting as I had so little time to rehearse it. I'm going to expand it to an hour and remount probably in the next 2 months. Feel free to spread the word. I'm sure the Cult is aware of what I'm doing now. 2 days after I did the show, people posted photos on my FB page and an old Scn friend wanted to friend me on FB. Told him I couldn't accept his request as I sometimes post anti stuff and don't want to offend him. He probably was set up to do that. He's a sweetheart but just stuck in their cogs. Talk about the opposite of a Cog! Thank you again for your kind words and support!!! My best. Roz"

Let's support her. She's an important messenger delivering the truth. Spread the word.

Roz' Yahoo has been compromised and she asked that I let her fans here know. I did get a spam e-mail from it last night. Yahoo is a bit of a security sieve in this regard and I recommend Gmail with dual passwords.

Roz asked me to post that the problem with her e-mail is now fixed.

Hi All,

Roz here. Thank you all for your amazing support. I'm making the show longer as I type. Was wondering if anyone could send me an actual photocopy of the references, "Student's Guide to Acceptable Behavior" and also "TR8". I may be utilizing these in the next round. Thanks so much. Love, Roz

Roz ~ WOW~ So funny!! It is great to laugh at how insane Scientology really is! Thanks for making a very traumatic "incident" filled with pain and unconsciousness - SCIENTOLOGY - less painful. We all need to make fun of it while exposing the truth. Thank you. Please keep us informed if you are harassed in any way by the Church of Scientology and David Miscavige.

THANK YOU!

Here are the TRs. Scroll down to TR8

Couldn't find any copy of Student's guide on the internet. It would, however, be in a student Hat pack. Here is the reference HCO PL 15 December 1965R Issue 1 Revised 25.7.87 STUDENT'S GUIDE TO ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR.

Update on Roz Cohn, courtesy of BroadwayWorld online mag: http://losangeles.broadwayworld.com...ua-Finkel-on-Building-a-Cabaret-Act-20130719#

The interview focuses on Joshua Finkel, who provides guidance to certain performers on how best to showcase their talents, but of interest here is his connection to Roslyn "Roz" Cohn. Here's a quote from the article:

Roslyn developed her act not only as a cathartic piece for herself but also as a way to help other people leave an oppressive situation. For her that was the Church of Scientology. Joshua says, "We're now extending her set into a full show. Roz's video of her act went viral with many ex-Scientologists directing people to it as a way to get information, get enlightened and get the courage to get out."

Brava, Roz! And ESMB, too!
