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

If you want to be amazed at a multi-personality of a multitude of characters, voices, and accents, then you must see this one person play. He was truly amazing to follow, as how did he keep a straight face, and /or remember characters w/different voices?
Evil (typical) New York landlord “Killer” Joe is plotting against the tenants of his building. He’s already gotten rid of one, and another has passed under suspicious circumstances. Lorna Breedlove, a septuagenarian sex addict in recovery and den mother of the building, will not be moved. The rest of the tenants will follow her lead: Thomas the Log Cabin accountant, middle-aged stoner JP, and repentant retiring priest Father Benedict to name a few.
All is happening in a race with the new subway line, bringing more change and more people to the turbulent surroundings. Killer Joe enlists sadistic lawyer (redundant) Roveena, a praying mantis breaking the very laws she swore to uphold. So Joe takes matters into his own hands without noting the danger of one’s own petard.
The tenants battle through the red tape of City government and a slightly corrupt legal system, but as all true New Yorkers will explain: “Leave Manhattan? Not on your life!”
All 17 characters and most lines spoken have been witnessed or heard in New York City. Any correlation to any NYC landlord vs. tenant situation is purely coincidental, yet inevitable.
