The Woman of 1001 Voices & Faces - Bethany Owen - October 6, 2011

Reprinted from Lake Tahoe Entertainer -

Entering stage left, wreathed in red lights, the blonde bombshell seductively takes the stage at the Horizon Casino in the Golden Cabaret Showroom as Marilyn Monroe and breaks into "Diamonds Area Girl's Best Friend." Bethany Owen imbues Marilyn Monroe and hundreds of other notorious singers, comedians and
celebrities—from Minnie Pearl to Shania Twain, Hillary Clinton to Sarah Palin and Katie Couric, Joan Rivers, Madonna and Cher —with a wit that's both slightly cutting and affectionate.

The Huntington Beach, CA-based impressionist has become the world's most prolific female in this male dominated field by combining spot on recreations of celebs' vocal tics and facial expressions with lyrics and
humorous bits that cleverly spoof the originals' personas. Check the segment with Martha Stewart singing "Jailhouse Rock" for hilarious proof.

Owen's been playing her "One Voice" one-woman show—with crucial support by husband/director/producer
Jim Whirlow—at the Horizon Casino Resort – Lake Tahoe since opening in May 2010, making it a 15 month run to date.

Over the past 8 years since the conception and premier opening of the show at the legendary Cinegrill Cabaret on Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA - “One Voice” has toured out of the Los Angeles
area to some far off distance places such as Hawaii, Germany, Canuan Island in the South Caribbean, Aruba, India and everything in-between around the US and Canada. As an example, when not touring, Owen will do commercial LA voice-over TV and radio projects, specialty celebrity voices for companies
like IGT in recording character voices for their newest electronic casino gaming slot machines, to voice-over work for shows like MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch, their hit celebrity claymation TV show or live interview appearances on shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live!

But it's her stage show "One Voice" that most impressively demonstrates Owen's staggering range.
She typically inhabits 50 characters during a 90-minute performance, while doing all of her own costume and wig changes onstage. A whirlwind of musical theater, comedy and dance, "One Voice" is an impressive
spectacle that appeals to many demographics. It's the culmination of this Orange County woman's indefatigable ambition to capture a unique niche in show business—a destiny she claims to have desired since she was 3.

A lithe, long-limbed redhead, Owen started taking ballet lessons at age 6 while living in Seattle. At 14, she studied under famed flamenco dancer José Greco and then entered the Orange County Ballet Theater in Fullerton at 15.

But at age 17 Owen was forced to forgo the rigors of serious dancing based on an injury, so she redirected her energies to music, joining a popular show band that often played in Las Vegas, who needed
a choreographer and singer, then onto developing her unique talents to mimic the human voice.

But Owen hesitated to fully exploit her talent for mimicry. "I would try to make my living in other ways, but
audiences liked it and ultimately I would get booked into places because I had this piece in my act where I would do these imitations," she says. "After awhile, I began to realize that this is what I'm here for.

This is something that not everybody can do, and people like it. So I'm going to give them what they like!”

Owen’s impressions are pegged on comedy, but the talent which is displayed is serious business.

And the crowd can sense it when Owen sings as Patsy Cline, Judy Garland or Loretta Lynne.

In her classic ankle-length Loretta-style country dress, Bethany Owen sings “Coal Miner’s Daughter” with an almost-eerie resemblance to the legendary country music queen.

This element of being able to capture the emotion in every character Owen brings to the stage is this reason for the on-going extension of ‘ONE VOICE” at the Horizon Casino Resort.

So catch this two-time winner for “Best Female Voice Impressionist” – Las Vegas NV, in her award winning, one-woman show "ONE VOICE" performing at the Horizon Casino Golden Cabaret Showroom and take a look at the zany and fun side of celebrity personalities through the use of comedic parody and musical
vocal tributes to some of the world's most legendary female superstars of our time - and with almost 400 voice impressions in Owen's roster, you'll never know who might show up next?

“ONE VOICE” starring Voice Impressionist, Bethany Owen performs every Friday through Tuesday at 8 p.m.
in the Golden Cabaret Showroom inside the Horizon casino Resort. General $34 / Teen $17 (Senior and Group discounts
available)

Las Vegas Sun Showroom Column - March 25, 2005

Written by: Entertainment Columnist Jerry Fink

Hearing Voices:
Impressionist/vocalist/comedian Bethany Owen gave a memorable performance at the Stardust on Friday night, demonstrating her skill of mimicking dozens of celebrities.

Owen, based in Los Angeles, tours the country performing at clubs and corporate events.

She would be a welcome addition to the Vegas entertainment scene -- Owen has great comedic timing, a fine singing voice and most of her impressions are dead on.

Her Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Lena Horn, Peggy Lee, Fran Drescher and Marilyn Monroe numbers were especially intriguing.

Owen shares the stage with dozens of wigs and costumes, which she changes into in front of the audience.

Among her funniest numbers is a Martha Stewart version of "Jailhouse Rock," and the voices of the mothers of celebrities such as Jackie Mason and Andy Rooney.

Jerry Fink's showroom column appears on Fridays. Reach him at jerry@lasvegassun.com at (702) 259-4058.
