Laurie Kilmartin is a successful stand-up comedian and Emmy-nominated comedy writer with an album, a book, a podcast and, most importantly, a Twitter account, on which she became famous earlier this year for live-tweeting one-liners from her father's death bed. A former staff writer for The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson who currently writes for TBS's Conan, Kilmartin has performed her hilarious observational stand-up about dating, motherhood and more on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Today Show, Comedy Central, VH1 and Showtime. In 2010, she was a finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing, but has become more recently known for her stream of terrifically grim online missives, posted as she watched her father die. The result was a master class in how humor heals and how it can shepherd a person, even a whole family, from a life with a parent to a life without one. Join her as she turns her poignantly funny tweets into a one-woman comedy show and films it for her first-ever stand-up special. Learn More

This was a nice little 90minute play with three women and a gentleman pianist who accompanied them during songs. The stories each told were interesting, as I believe they were their personal stories.
My mom wasn't able to go after all so I took my boyfriend. He didn't complain about it but he didn't say anything flattering either. I think it is more relevant to middle-aged to older women although some twenty-somethings may enjoy it too.
It was worth the money and it was a nice surprise to see that they offered some snacks before hand that you could take into the theater i.e. cheese, wine, cookies, water, brownies...and it was all Included. Check em' out!!!
Oh and there is street parking around the corner and the stroll wasn't long at all :)
A Woman’s Rite, an original theatrical piece celebrating womens lives through songs and stories, will have its international premier this month at the Lyric Theatre. 4 woman will take the audience into births and deaths, families and friends, the craft of art and the the craft of living a woman’s life by singing songs familiar and foreign and telling stories right out of the diary you keep by your bed. It is a celebration of women celebrating life in all of its comedy and tragedy.
