This is the oddest five-star rating I've ever given. I laughed VERY hard -- but for all the wrong reasons. This show is SO amateurish and SO poorly-written and so completely over-the-top awful that it suddenly became brilliant.

Description

The Stripping Granny comes to San Francisco! Lynn Ruth Miller, 76 years old and still blooming, brings her 90-minute cabaret to Actors Theatre. Don’t miss this travesty of song and dance, a show-stealer for the past three Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, winner of the 2008 Three Weeks Editors Award and 2009 Brighton’s Latest Magazine’s Star of the Festival Award. This is musical comedy at its worst, proving that even though your body parts drop to your ankles, they still can move with enough zest to raise an eyebrow if nothing else. 

Lynn Ruth Miller had been remodeling facts since Eve ate fruit. Once she began presenting her prevarications to an audience larger than her four dogs, she hit the headlines in Edinburgh in August 2005 because she jumped out of a cake (almost) and removed her clothes (not quite) on every stage that would have her. In 2008, her antics hit the headlines of The London Times and now she performs her off-key cabaret here to glorify old age and revel in the disasters it brings to the human form.
