Ha. "Xenu. Who knew?" I hope someone gets her performance again with better audio, but it was worth watching for sure. She's funny and genuine.

Wow, she is fantastic, funny and tells a moving story. Many thanks and Kudos to you Roslyn!
I hope she gets to perform this for a wide audience. It's pretty good. Both funny and serious.

Update on Roz Cohn, courtesy of BroadwayWorld online mag: http://losangeles.broadwayworld.com...ua-Finkel-on-Building-a-Cabaret-Act-20130719#
The interview focuses on Joshua Finkel, who provides guidance to certain performers on how best to showcase their talents, but of interest here is his connection to Roslyn "Roz" Cohn. Here's a quote from the article:
Brava, Roz! And ESMB, too!
Wish somebody would have cleaned up the sound. I couldn't make out half of the words that came out of her dear mouth. Wish I could have understood it better. *sigh*
Anyways, congrats to her on leaving the CoS!
There's a related post here:

I haven't looked around on the forums to see if this was posted or not, but I figured this was the best thread for it anyway.
Yesterday on Tony's blog, the new version was posted, which I am very glad for. I tried to watch the original video and could barely understand a word she said. She has done a new version. Better angled and extremely clear and good quality. Fantastic story Roz.
Today Roslyn Cohn issued this press release, which I'll quote in its entirety:
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Actress Roslyn Cohn was a member of the Church of Scientology for 23 years. Her one-woman show, "diffiCult to leave" was performed November 25, 2013 at Sterling's Upstairs at the Federal in North Hollywood, California.

With narrative and music, Roslyn describes how she became entrenched in Scientology, at great personal expense -- both financial and emotional -- and the enlightenment that came when she was finally able to extricate herself from the powerful organization and reclaim her life. The show is the very first onstage performance by an Ex-Scientologist regarding the controversial subject.
The Huffington Post: "Alternately hilarious and moving, the show is a first-hand account of the before and after of life in a cult ... perhaps the largest and most powerful cult in contemporary times ... a story the world needs to hear."
The entirety of "diffiCult to leave" can be seen on YouTube:
Roslyn graduated from Sanford Meisner's Neighborhood Playhouse, was a performer with Tony Randall's National Actors Theatre and has worked with Barbra Streisand, Seth Rogen, Anne Fletcher, Sidney Lumet, Andy Garcia, Tony Randall, Valerie Perrine, Milton Katselas, Austin Pendleton, Danny Burstein, Michael Stuhlbarg, et al.
