Shirley Valentine starring Sarah-Lee Dobbs

Shirley Valentine starring Sarah-Lee Dobbs

Willy Russell’s Tony-winning dramedy Shirley Valentine is a powerfully funny portrait of mid-life rebirth. Shirley is an empty-nest English housewife with an emotionally absent husband, who resorts to talking with the wall for companionship. When she exits her home for an unannounced fortnight holiday in Greece, everyone assumes she’s going to have a scandalous affair, but it’s really her own lost lust for living that she’s searching for along the sun-soaked sand.

Russell’s script is like a British sex farce without most of the sex, and Dobbs deliciously wrings every last laugh out of Valentine’s amusingly dated attitudes towards dating and feminism. But there’s also a deep range of real emotions buried inside this character, which Dobbs excavates with touching empathy.

“Need to be shaken out of the doldrums? Just want a little push to get your life back on track? Something to help you remember the real — and happy — you? Well, don’t buy a self-help book or schedule an appointment with the doctor. A trip to “Shirley Valentine” will do the trick.” – Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel

The Tour: Bathhouse to Broadway Featuring Electra

Created from a friendly dare and presented to a large rowdy group on Halloween in 1977, Electra has enjoyed a wild roller coaster ride as drag royalty: from summers on Fire Island to private parties throughout NYC, Long Island, Connecticut and New Jersey.

Electra’s ability to make you laugh or cry at the drop of a heel is unquestionable; his impersonations are wildly applauded and are so spot-on they make the real stars have a second look!
