Poor Almira Gulch! In The Wizard of Oz, the crotchety cantankerous Kansan intrigued and intimidated us, but she never got to tell her side of story. Why does she ride that bike? What does she have against neighborhood girls and their little dogs, too? What becomes of her after that tornado? And most important of all: who's the real woman beneath that ferocious facade?
Now, the biddy is back in all the glory Hollywood denied her, starring in a one-man, one-piano tour de force: MISS GULCH RETURNS! In this unforgettable metaphorical musical, Miss Gulch gives us the dirt. She lays her soul bare -- and yours if you dare. And she belts a mean tune. (What other kind would you expect?)
The role of Miss Gulch is performed by multiple Big Easy award-winner Bob Edes JR., accompanied at the piano byJim Walpole. MISS GULCH RETURNS! is presented by Running With Scissors.
Turn off your cell phones, turn Judy's picture to the wall, turn up the volume, and welcome to the wit and wisdom of Miss Gulch, your "entertainesse extraordinaire!"
