Today we discuss one of the only moments we are alone as performers (though technically also in front of hundreds of people)—the solo act.

What are our favorite solo acts as performers and why, and maybe a little on how those same solos have changed post-baby? Enjoy a peek at our creative processes and favorite stage moments as solo performers.
