FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS Opens Tonight!
by BWW News Desk - Sep 8, 2016

As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in wickedly funny, irreverent and touching ways. (more...)

by Brodie Paparella - Apr 10, 2016

On stage, a very promising triad of stripper poles to set the scene where we meet the camp and cavalier characters. The body confident Bev, a perfect fit for Melinda Ryan who drove every moment home, is finding her way toward a loving relationship. Trisha, enthusiastically played by Hayley Flowers, is finding her way toward a more loving relationship with herself. Faith is the blossoming virgin given every ounce of silly sweetness by Kaitlin DeLacy, while the crass Rita seeks an escape from her abusive home, played by Wendy Winkler. Rounding out the group is the older Sarah, who is revealed to be handling a relapse of breast cancer, Jeannie Gee giving the highlight performance of the piece as a complete natural. Shaping and narrating the action is their unconventional pole teacher Gabby. Together they attempt to raise funds in a pole performance for breast cancer research, and discover a lot about each other and themselves along the way. (more...)
