Harrys presentation, we are given an idea of just how
Spirit might work on a day-to-day basis in our own lives.
Treat yourself to an insightful night out
"Special Delivery", fluidly constructed using fantasy elements to underline human realities, was an utter delight. Written and performed by the magical Harry Hart-Browne…with the actor totally in control of his instrument and ideals. Quite funny. It's a charming hour or so, enlightened by Mr. Hart-Browne's expert rendition of joy and Mr. Bringelson's dramatic solidity.
- Stage Happenings
"Exciting. Not to be missed. "Special Delivery", written and performed by Harry Hart-Browne features over 20 characters, all played by one enormously talented actor…He eloquently presented a dialogue that most of us face daily. The adventure unfolds in a comedic and sometimes sad way with heartfelt realism. As his story unfolds, the audience is caught up…showed the actor portraying a great sense of bravery in sharing so much, and these impassioned performances are a wonderful way to spend an evening."

"You were brilliant. The writing is so intriguing, complicated, yet simple.
Your character work was as good as I've ever seen. I loved it!
So unique and frankly BRILLIANT! Thanks for entertaining me!"

"Harry "Heart" Browne's "Special Delivery" takes us on a Spiritual and Emotional ride from the Cosmos to Earth and back. His energetic and precise performance of multiple characters from God, (yes I said God), to Angels, Fairies, Teachers, Parents, Saints, Sinners, and his own Fragmented Personalities becomes a theatrical romp from shy childhood, to love starved adulthood, to ultimate "Wholeness and Light." I highly recommend the show for it's message and Harry's dazzling performance!"

"This is phenomenal. I am awed. Harry Hart-Browne is truly an artist whose art is
figuring out life itself. His extraordinary one-man-show tells us - in multiple voices - what makes us tick, and tickles us in the telling. To be profound and fun at the same time is a neat trick, and Hart-Browne is a mighty neat trickster."

was incredible. The play left me shaking. Im still processing
the meaning. It was awesome and courageous of him to expose
all parts of himself and share with an audience in a way that
few would risk. It put me in contact with the pieces in myself
that I have not fully integrated. No performance EVER has affected
me the way Special Delivery did. I watched him bounce
from a moment of complete emptiness with tears behind the eyes
to a jokester with a smile on his face. How does he do that?
The man is a genius.

I cannot thank you deeply enough."
Jane Marla Robbins - Author / Actress / Coach,
In this amazing one-man-show, Harry Hart-Browne took us on a virtual roller-coaster ride through his own life passages, returning
us safely to our seats, and all the better for it. Joyful, sobering, intimate, disquieting, enchanting Harry shakes us and wakes up the creative nature in us all! Special Delivery is a gift that keeps on giving
Thank you, Harry!

Amazing. Brilliantly conceived and beautifully performed. The ideas in this piece have stayed with me and have helped me.
Laura Whitney, Co-Founder of The Sage Mountain School
It is illuminated by the authors sharp writing and keen spiritual insights.
It is alternately hilarious and deeply touching. The play is also extremely well directed, the multiple characters are each sharply delineated, and the piece is
well paced. In addition it displays a highly skilled actor in total control of his craft. The fact that all of the above are the work of one man, Harry Hart-Browne, makes Special Delivery a remarkable achievement.
I cannot recommend it highly enough!
-Bryan Miller, Musical Director of the Foothill Center of Religious Science
Special Delivery casts a spell of wonderment upon the audience. This tightly paced, brilliantly well-written show packs more joy, laughter, genuine heart, and jaw-dropping epiphanies into
its 60 minute running time than many a good season on Broadway
is a deft and polished performer with timing that could split an atom. I left the theatre happier to be alive.
Libbe S. HaLevy, M.A., award-winning playwright of Shattered Secrets
Special Delivery charms with both remarkable theatre craft and the healing message of powerful and joyous spirit. Harrys skills as an actor and writer amaze me. The message he relays
provides the ever-needed encouragement we all need to overcome our personal critics and get out on the stage of our lives to do our own good work.

The beauty and integrity of your show was very moving to me. You bring to your work a wonderful blend of glorious imagination and hardcore skill which I find exhilarating and inspiring. There you are, with your body and awesome talent and riveting story and it all works seamlessly. What bravery! Its no wonder you healed yourself, but its a great gift that you heal us in the bargain.
