Dirty Blonde: River City Rep opens Mae West comedy with Seva May and Patric McWilliams on June 24
DIRTY BLONDE was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Play, in the 2000 Broadway season. This comedy, written by Claudia Shear, charts the rise of Hollywood’s Mae West, famous for her uninhibited sexuality and amusing, provocative double entendres. From her beginnings in vaudeville to her legendary stature as one of filmdom’s greatest stars 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, ground-breaking female icon.
Starring: SEVA MAY ~ SHERRY BOUCHER ~ SHAWN DION ~ PATRIC McWILLIAMS
The show will be directed by Patric McWilliams with Light Design by David Gipson, Set & Costume Design by McWilliams, Musical Direction by Kermit Poling and Musical Staging by Anna Maria Sparke-Keele. The Production Stage Manager is Vanna Richardson.
