I’m No Angel

A One-Act Play Showcasing The Life Of The Legendary Hollywood Screen Siren, Mae West

Thursday, May 10 at 7:00pm

The original Blonde Bombshell, Mae West made a name for herself in vaudeville and on the New York stage before becoming a Hollywood star in the 1930’s. Her career spanned seven decades and The American Film Institute named her one of the 15 greatest female stars of all time. Karen Dunham, who performs in local theatre and television, “becomes Mae West, herself” as she presents her performance piece about the life, career and music of the famous siren, who was sometimes in trouble with the censors. Join us for an hour of delightful comedy and nostalgia. As Mae West said, “why don’t you come up and see me sometime?”
