Dirty Blonde - 2000 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Dirty Blonde, which draws its title from the West film quip "I made myself platinum, but I was born a dirty blonde," tells the story of Jo, an office temp and aspiring actress, and Charlie, who works in the New York Public Library's film archives, both lonely and obsessive West fans who meet at her grave and form a unique relationship as they swap stories about the career highlights and eventual decline into parody of the woman they worship.



Three actors play twenty-four characters in this piece, dubbed "the perfect, funny, touching, upbeat show" by TalkingBroadway.com.
