Winner of the New York International Fringe Festival’s “Overall Excellence Award for a Solo Show,” Faye Lane’s Beauty Shop Stories returns to the Huron Club at The Soho Playhouse, 15 Vandam Street, NYC.  Performances will take place Sundays at 5pm beginning December 5th through January 9th.  Directed by MAC Award winner, Jay Rogers, Faye Lane’s Beauty Shop Stories features with music written by Keith Thompson, Larry Rosen and Carol Hall (music and lyrics for “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”).

 

The glittered-up memories of a Green Bean Queen, Faye Lane’s Beauty Shop Stories is a funny, inspiring and  upbeat chronicle of Faye’s childhood in her mama's beauty shop in Texas told through poignant story and stirring song.  As a fat little girl sitting on the front porch in a glittered-up Burger King crown with a MoonPie in her hand, she dreamed of telling stories and singing songs on the stage in New York City. Now it’s just Faye, a microphone and a piano.  Have all her glamorous fantasies come true?
