BWW Review: DIXIE'S TUPPERWARE PARTY - A Tupperware Party With a Comedic Flair
Dixie Tupperware Party - A Party With A Purpose
I had the opportunity to see "Dixie's Tupperware Party" this week at the Booth Playhouse, in Charlotte, NC. I really didn't know what to expect - however judging by the title, I calculated that it has something to do with the brand name Tupperware™, which I imagine every woman has owned a "bowl" or two at some point. Yes, it was actually a "Tupperware party" with a flair of stand-up comedy delivered by its colorful (red-headed), "chatty", life-of-the-party hostess, Dixie Longate, who actually reminded me of the character, "Vera", in the late 70's television comedy sitcom, "Alice". This one-woman explosion is full of off-colored jokes, an infectious laugh (more like the snorting of a donkey), FREE giveaways, and an impromptu update of the latest Tupperware™ inventions. I never thought that anyone could take the platform of an in-home Tupperware™ party usually attended by housewives and make it into an entertaining evening for theater-goers, yet Dixie pulled it off. She was witty, personable, engaging, and down-right "hilarious". Though Tupperware™ parties are not my "thing", it was an amusing evening all the same.
