PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A DUMB BLONDE

Genre: Comedy, Musical, Festival
Written & Directed by Sharon Fogarty

From NYTheatre.com's "People of the Year" recipient Sharon Fogarty comes a hilarious new musical comedy in one act. This memory tale features Nora, an artist who thinks she can easily give up her art and survive happily in the corporate world. When emotional turmoil turns her into a suicidal wreck, it is only through her art that she is able to crawl back among the living.

Stages of grief are personified by actors Debra Wassum (Acceptance), Matthew Porter (Pain), Rachel McPhee (Sorrow) and Pete Aguero (Boredom) with special appearances by Bonnie Lee (Obsession) and Hope Garland (Therapist). The catalyst for Nora's demise is portrayed by Thomas Rainey (Prince Charming) who dumps her for so that he may pursue career at being beautiful.

Music and choreography is by Sharon Fogarty, accompanied by Matthew Lauren Cohen (Piano). Costumes are assisted by IT Award nominee Ramona Ponce.
