Dirty Blonde

By Claudia Shear

A reunion of one of the few complete Broadway casts in history to be entirely nominated for individual Tony Awards®—Claudia Shear, Bob Stillman and Kevin Chamberlin—in a touching and hilarious tribute to Mae West. The 1930s film star comes roaring back to life when two super-fans meet at her grave and form a hesitant friendship. Together, their celebrity fantasies form a strikingly human portrait of America’s wittiest sex symbol.

Ms. Shear finds the enduring substance in the smoke and mirrors of one actress’ stardom, allowing Mae West to shock and delight once again. – The New York Times

I am My Own Wife

By Doug Wright

When the Berlin Wall crumbled in 1989, many Cold War artifacts emerged: none stranger than elegant Charlotte von Mahlsdorf. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning, one-man show explores the mystery of how transgendered Charlotte—who grew up a Jewish boy—hid in plain sight from the Nazis and the Communists for over fifty years. Jefferson Mays (star of Broadway’s A Gentleman’s Guide…) recreates his unforgettable Tony Award®-winning performance as the remarkable and inspiring Charlotte.

Mr. Mays is thoroughly mesmerizing. [I Am My Own Wife] is both moving and intellectually absorbing…a true tour de force. – The New York Times
