The Ecstasy of Victoria Woodhull

"Rich in biographical and rhetorical detail, it never feels dry. Ford skips along, bringing a lyrical quality to even the densest parts of the script."
~ Robert Peacock, The Wee Review

Ashley Ford as Victoria Woodhull at Hollywood Fringe Festival

The Ecstasy of Victoria Woodhull

Hollywood Fringe Festival

"Ashley Ford treats us to a smart spiritual history lesson…. Victoria Woodhull filled many roles: activist for the sexual liberation of women, a spiritualist con-artist and the first woman to run for President. In her one-woman show based on Woodhull, Ashley Ford manages to succeed in capturing the many facets of this fascinating woman."
- Earnest Kearney, The TVolution

Hollywood Fringe Reviews

"Ashley Ford plays the role – four roles? – she was born to play... Ms. Ford really brought Woodhull to life – on more than one level... A brilliant tour-de-force history lesson one-woman show time-traveling interactive seance."
~ Micah Cover
"Super fun from the jump. At times a truly hysterical take on a historical and wild story of a woman history forgot. Beautiful acting and physical work."
- Katierose Enriquez
"Ashley twirls like a dervish to transition from one character to another...
Engrossing and spellbinding! A perfect one-woman show! Ashley Ford “hosts” many characters during a seance to tell this amazing true story, proving once again that truth is ALWAYS stranger than fiction."
- Robert Berg
"To command an audience from start to finish rested entirely on Ashley Ford’s shoulders and luckily for all involved in the production, she delivered by the spirit loads – WHAT. A. PERFORMANCE. This is tour de force and someone to watch (in my humble opinion)!!
...the portrayals of not only Victoria, but also, her sister, Tennessee, were spellbinding and powerful! Kudos!"
