Dad's Garage to Stage New Sketch Show WOMAN OF THE YEAR
by BWW News Desk - Jan 18, 2016

This February, Dad's Garage will challenge the portrayal of modern women in society during the scripted comedy show "Woman of the Year." Featuring sketches written by the ladies of Dad's Garage, this show twists all sorts of traditional notions of how women are supposed to act, dress, think, and live their lives. The story begins on New Year Day and goes through a year of life for a typical American woman.

During Valentine's Day, female executives talk about what crap men will buy to feel better about their endowment. See what happens when a Black Friday shopper meets his match in the women of his dreams. Madame President must save Christmas. And women celebrate their favorite holiday-April 20. The sketches confront female stereotypes in the home, office, and public spaces. (more...)
