No late seating, so beware! And be patient when being directed to your seats/ getting your program. FYI, the even numbered seats are near the theatre door with odds opposite; all two-digit seat numbers (i.e., 29, 31, etc.) are on the "sides" with the three-digit ones (i.e., 102, 104, etc.) facing centre stage.

This is a smart and sassy show about screen legend Mae West. The cast of three play multiple roles and each one is an extremely versatile actor. Judith Miller shines as Mae, perfectly capturing her bawdiness, but also bringing a gentle quality...continued

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.
