The Kansas City Public Library premieres its seventh season of Script-in-Hand performances presented by the Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre with a continuation of 2012’s popular female-focused Women of the Years series. First up is Claudia Shear’s Dirty Blonde.
This 2000 Broadway hit weaves scenes from the life of Mae West – the sexually uninhibited comedienne who became a household name in the 1930s – with a budding romance between a modern man and woman who share an obsession with the platinum-coiffed movie icon.
Funding for this series is provided by a grant from an anonymous donor with additional support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
