Geffen Playhouse Extends DIXIE'S TUPPERWARE PARTY Through 8/31
The Geffen Playhouse has extended the Spotlight Entertainment Series presentation of the hilarious comedy Dixie's Tupperware Party - four weeks have been added (a doubling of the original run) with a close date of Sunday, August 31. This one-woman tour-de force stars Drama Desk Award Nominee Dixie Longate in the role that she was born to play. This production is playing Los Angeles as it enters its seventh year of a smash worldwide tour. The Hollywood Reporter calls Dixie's Tupperware Party, "often hilarious and always endearing," and LA Splash says, "Fasten your seatbelts. You're in for an evening of non-stop laughter!"
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!
For the last six years, Ms. Longate has tickled audiences and critics in major cities around the country as well as London and Melbourne - grossing over 3.7 million dollars in ticket sales. 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.
There is very limited seating for performances in the original run (through August 3) and there will be no performance on Wednesday, August 6. A limited number of onstage seats are available for this production. Patrons purchasing onstage seats are required to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled show time or they may be reseated at the discretion of the management.
Tickets currently range from $62-$72 and can be purchased at the Geffen Playhouse box office, over the phone at 310.208.5454 or online at www.geffenplayhouse.com. For groups of 10 or more please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This show contains adult content.
