Spicy and scandalous secrets -- as well as tales of personal embarrassment -- pepper The Closet Bitch, the controversial one-woman show from acclaimed actress and writer Shana Solomon. Thanks to a very understanding family (and statutes of limitations), Solomon can now perform this revealing and deeply personal piece where she plays 13 characters, including a Jewish boss, a Puerto Rican mistress, an Italian co-worker and a drug-dealing, Ivy-League-educated father. Winner of the esteemed IFNY Monologue Slam, Solomon brings this raw, true and completely hilarious show to Stage Left Studio. Learn More
