Peggy Shaw: Menopausal Gentleman

Wednesday Jul 25, 2007 8:00 PM This is a past program

Peggy Shaw brings her legendary solo show to Los Angeles for one night only. Part autobiographical monologue, part stand-up comedy, part blues lounge act, Menopausal Gentleman is a must-see gender-bending chronicle, directed by Rebecca Taichman. 

Actor, playwright, and producer Peggy Shaw has received three OBIE Awards for her work with the lesbian theater company Split Britches, which she founded with Lois Weaver and Deb Margolin in 1980. She won OBIE Awards for her performances in Dress Suits To Hire, a collaboration with Holly Hughes, and Belle Reprieve, a collaboration with the London-based theater troupe BlooLips. 


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation and Mimi and Werner Wolfen. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, Erika Glazer, and an anonymous donor.
