DIRTY BLONDE

written by CLAUDIA SHEAR

sponsored by Strauss Construction

Jo, an aspiring actress, works as an office temp.  Charlie works in the New York Public Library and is a self-proclaimed movie history fanatic.  They both spruce up their ho-hum lives with their obsessive zeal for the bombshell and scandal-inducing Mae West.  Fate intervenes when they meet at West’s gravesite and forge an unlikely friendship.

Laden with one-liners, sexual innuendo, and alluring come-hither glances, DIRTY BLONDE is a comedy dripping with burlesque and filled with the music of the era.  Scenes of West’s bombastic life are interwoven with the developing molecules of Jo and Charlie’s chemistry.  And what we are left with is a story that is compelling, touching, and dramatically over the top.

Much like Mae West herself.
