“Bubba Moo Diaries” is a one-woman comedy, musical revue about a “has-been, never-really-was” opera singer reminiscing about her younger years in show business in New York. Bubba tells of her first opera audition, first singing job, temp job, and dating life while living in New York trying to find her place in the biz all through comedic monologues, arias, and songs. Bubba Moo had several failed marriages, she mistreats others around her; yet she still thinks that people adore her.
