BADASS - Sex, Music, and Making Mae West @ 54 Below


Mae West shocked and rocked the world, as one of the most iconic singing entertainers ever to beat the censors. In a man’s business, she invented herself—sex was her currency, and she controlled the treasury. Without her, Madonna and Lady Gaga would simply not exist. Tony nominee Emily Skinner takes us on a wild journey West—featuring songs from bawdy to ballads that Mae herself performed in her 75-year career...and every reason why Mae West not only empowers women today, but also serves as the perfect guide to everything you’d ever need to know about life. A world-premiere show that invites us to “Come up and see me sometime.”

At 54 Below Oct. 29, 30, 31, and Nov. 6th.
