FIX ME, JESUS by Helen Sneed, directed by Sam Pinkleton, at Abingdon Theatre Company's Dorothy Strelsin Theatre (312 W 36th Street), continues through November 24.
In FIX ME, JESUS, Annabell Armstrong, a rising star in the Texas Democratic Party, frantically searches for the perfect dress at Neiman Marcus in Dallas. While trapped in the Reagan-era 1980s, her career, love life, finances, and family relations are a train wreck. As characters from her past invade the dressing room, Annabell must choose between independence and her lifelong fear of her own power.
FIX ME, JESUS co-stars Kate Froemmling, Lori Gardner, Polly Lee, Lisa McMillan, Lee Roy Rogers and Mitch Tebo.
Performances of FIX ME, JESUS run through Sunday, November 24 in the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre (312 W 36th St): Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7pm; Fridays at 8pm; Saturdays at 2pm and 8pm; and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets: $25. Call 866-811-4111 or visit www.abingdontheatre.org.
