This very special one-time event will be held on Monday, March 4 at The Century Theatre located inside The Historic Gem Theatre at 333 Madison Street Detroit; MI. Tickets are currently on sale for $75.00 including dinner at the Century Grille beginning at 6:00PM.
Described as a bawdy, funny drama, DIRTY BLONDE is no evening of mere impersonation. With Vaudeville and her rise to Hollywood stardom as a backdrop, Mae West becomes a symbol for two adoring fans to discover their nature, their identities, and ultimately themselves.
In conjunction with the retirement reception for Barbara Murray from AIDS Partnership Michigan, this evening's entertainment serves as reminder to celebrate ourselves and the impact we have on those around us.
DIRTY BLONDE will feature from Disney's THE LION KING, Mark David Kaplan (Zazu) as Frank Wallace, Joe Frisco and others; and Ben Lipitz (Pumbaa) as Charlie. From Jackson, Michigan PRISON CITY PLAYERS, Colleen Flynn will star as Jo and Mae West.
All proceeds will benefit AIDS Partnership Michigan and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA).
AIDS Partnership Michigan is the state's central resource for information and referral about HIV/AIDS and the largest service provider in Michigan. The agency provides total, wrap around HIV/AIDS services serving over 8,500 people each year. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) is the nation's leading industry based HIV/AIDS fundraising and grant-making organization.
