Courting Mae West

Those in the mood for some titilating theatre should consider Courting Mae West, part of Midsumma's Playing in the Raw season.


Published:

 

Performer LindaAnn Loschiavo takes to the stage at The Chapel to deliver her take on the lives and loves of one of the film world's most notorious dames, Mae West. West was the queen of innuendo, the original Madonna, with mouthfuls of witty sass! Mae West was the first true sex symbol who, with her razor sharp tongue + challenging stage shows, arrived with the force of a hurricane.

Frustrated with the male-dominated world of Broadway, West takes the radical step of writing and casting her own plays in a quest to make Broadway more Broadminded. Smashing taboos, shocking the middle class, enduring raids, jail time and obscenity trials, she brought gays and drag queens into the spotlight forever and sent the censors into a spin.

Check out Loschiavo's protrait of Mae when Courting Mae West plays at the Chapel for Midsumma.
