Nine Dresses: The Show

Nine Dresses.  Special Leftovers from years of fashion delusion.  An evening of music, monologue, self-induced madness - and a heavy dose of satire on our cultural obsession with the Fashion Goddess!  Who cares - let's just fashionista!

Lurking in the dark corners of the closet…the untouched you’s that were bought and never worn. Try them on and see what you’ve been missing.   A romp through a lot of ridiculous dresses, from the 80’s on up —dresses made of desires, secret identities, or just really ridiculous solutions to impossible questions.
