Nice little theater with an intimate feel. Lots of talent displayed in 3 actors/musicians. Great costumes, simple but effective stage decor. Good to see Mae West appreciated.

Description

Written by Claudia Shear

In Dirty Blonde, the audience gets to see how carefully and confidently Mae West developed the extravagant, sexy, taboo-breaking public persona that was the hallmark of her fame. At the same time, this comedy explores the lives of two misfits who are her biggest fans. At once a love story, a musical and an amusing take on celebrity obsession, Dirty Blonde is a joyous celebration of Hollywood’s bawdy, groundbreaking female icon.
