Dirty Blonde


January 25 - February 15, 2015

by Claudia Shear
original score by Bob Stillman

a love story with music

Jo is an aspiring actress. Charlie works in the film archives of the New York Public Library. Mae West was a sex symbol, a playwright, a movie star and a woman ahead of her time. Weaving together the historical story of Mae West with the tale of two present day fans, Dirty Blonde is a journey from vaudeville to Hollywood with all the romance, sexual innuendo, fabulous costumes and music from her classic films. As Mae West once said, “too much of a good thing can be wonderful.”
