Life doesn't always go according to plan. St. Louis native, Lisa Rothauser grew up with a passion for singing and a love of showbiz. She broke away from small town life and made it to the bright lights of Broadway only to be swept away to the 'burbs by the man of her mother's dreams. WTF? Ready for a change, Lisa sent the husband packing, dropped the kids off at school, and is headed straight back to Broadway. Life: WTF? is a musical celebration of her hilarious and inspiring transformation from Broadway performer to Stepford wife and back again.
Armed with a wig and bald cap, Lisa Rothauser began her career on Broadway as "Hold Me, Touch Me" and "Lick Me Bite Me" in the Tony Award-winning hit Mel Brooks musical, The Producers. She mounted a solo show entitled, Bye, Bye Lisa and starred in Mock Your World at various NYC venues, including The Zipper Theatre, Laurie Beechman Theatre, and Ars Nova. As a writer / composer, Lisa wrote a full-length original musical called Stealing Time with composer and producer, Tor Hyams. Stealing Time debuted at the NYMF in 2012 and has had many industry readings starring Eden Espinosa, Julia Murney, and Jeremy Kushnier.
Directed by Nathaniel Shaw (Any Given Monday) with musical direction by Grammy nominee Tor Hyams, tickets for Life: WTF? are $20 each and are available for purchase online here. For more information, visit: www.lisarothauser.com/news.
