DIXIE'S TUPPERWARE PARTY Kicks Off 7/8 at The Geffen
Dixie's Tupperware Party, the hilarious show starring Dixie Longate which turned Off-Broadway into a Tupperware-mania celebration and garnered the prestigious 2008 Drama Desk Award Nomination, rolls into the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater at the Geffen Playhouse July 8 (press opening July 9). Written by Kris Andersson, the production is playing Los Angeles as part of its 6th smash national tour.
Dixie's Tupperware Party stars Dixie Longate, as the fast-talking Tupperware Lady, who has packed up her catalogues, and left her children in an Alabama trailer park to journey across America. Critics and audiences have howled with laughter as Dixie throws a good ol' fashioned Tupperware Party filled with outrageously funny tales, heartfelt accounts, FREE giveaways, audience participation and the most fabulous assortment of Tupperware ever sold on a theater stage!
Loaded with the most up-to-date products available for purchase, Ms. Longate will share how she became a member of the illustrious "#1 Tupperware Seller in the World" Club, as she educates her guests on the many alternative uses she has discovered for her plastic products.
Ms. Longate has for the last five years tickled audiences and critics in major cities around the country as well as London, Melbourne and has sold over 2.7 million dollars in tickets over the run!
Produced by Down South LLC and directed by Patrick Richwood, Dixie's Tupperware Party will feature costumes designed by Miss Longate and lighting designed by Richard Winkler.
Tickets priced $55-60.00 are available in-person at the Geffen Playhouse box office, via phone at 310.208.5454 or online at www.geffenplayhouse.com. For groups of 10 or more please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
