ANN ARBOR – Mae West didn’t discover curves; she only uncovered them. And now theatergoers will have a chance to display their curves Aug.17 when Performance Network Theatre honors the movie icon’s 114th birthday with a special “Drag Night” performance of the hit show “Dirty Blonde.”
Patrons arriving dressed either as Mae West or gloriously in drag will get half off their ticket price. (The offer is good for only one ticket per person, however, and the ticket MUST be purchased on the night of show by the patron dressed in drag.)
At the end of the performance, the audience will vote to determine the best Mae West impersonator of the evening. And, of course, the winner will receive a fabulous prize.
“It should be a lot of fun,” predicted Jim Posante, who directed “Dirty Blonde.” The dramedy, which has received excellent reviews by all of the local critics, presents a unique look at the life and legend of the saucy and controversial star, played to perfection by Carla Milarch.
So get out your wigs, feathers, glitter and gowns and join in the fun. And don’t be surprised if the party continues afterwards at – where else – the /aut/ BAR!
