Leigh Hendrix To Present How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less 10/8-9
Rhode Island-based theatre artist and Myrtle Beach native Leigh Hendrix is proud to present the South Carolina premier of her solo performance, How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less. Written and performed by Hendrix and directed by Peter Deffet, the show is a hilarious coming out story and guide to gay for budding lesbians, no matter their sexual orientation. How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less runs October 8th at 7:30 PM and October 9th at 5:00 PM at Fresh Brewed Coffee House at 933 Broadway in downtown Myrtle Beach.
How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less was developed at Emerson College and Perishable Theatre. With the premier at WAM Theatre?s O Solo Mama Mia Festival in the Berkshires of Massachusetts in May 2011, Chris Rohman of The Vally Advocate said, " The magic of this show comes from its seamless marriage of pointEd Mockery with personal narrative..." calling Hendrix, "a delightfully surprising and witty performer."
With the outrageous character of motivational speaker Butchy McDyke as a guide, Hendrix leads the audience on a journey of self-discovery and first love, coming out, politics, and a really important Reba McEntire song. Hendrix says, "The show is deeply personal and incredibly silly at the same time. It?s a story about figuring out for yourself who you are and how that you is connected to everybody else. And there?s dancing. Really ridiculous dancing."
Hendrix creates comedic and personal solo performances and makes theatre as an actor, writer, and improvisor with other artists of all shapes and sizes in Providence, RI. She is a Myrtle Beach native and graduate of Coastal Carolina University. She has performed at Perishable Theatre, with Theatre of Thought, DoubleShift Dance Theatre, and as a guest with The Empire Revue at AS220 and The Sweet Little Variety Show. Hendrix performs nights of improvised television with The Trumans and will premier How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less in New York City at the United Solo Festival October 27th and The New Orleans Fringe Festival in November.
