NYC: “Tawny, Tell Me True” by David Drake

NYC: “Tawny, Tell Me True” by David Drake

Tonight, January 12th, in TAWNY, TELL ME TRUE, Obie Award-winning
playwright/performer David Drake (The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me) will
bring his latest theatrical creation Tawny Heatherton back to the stage
of midtown Manhattan’s Laurie Beechman Theatre, where the legendary
starlet made a critically acclaimed debut last winter in MY TAWNY
VALENTINE.

As directed by Robert La Fosse, with musical
direction by Lance Cruce, TAWNY, TELL ME TRUE is an evening of songs and
stories where Tawny discovers the meaning of the dawning of the Age of
Aquarius. Along the way — with videos by Ned Stresen-Reuter, and
original music by Trevor Kuprel — our loveably eccentric showbiz
survivor and “one hit wonder” of the disco zeitgeist of the 1980s
recalls such indelible moments in her globe-trotting journey as her
stint as a HEE HAW Honey, her unexpected tryst in Hollywood with Burt
and Loni (as well as that unusual encounter with Joan Van Ark on the set
of KNOT’S LANDING), and Tawny’s ongoing quest to reunite with her
long-lost aunt Joey, whom she last saw in the parking lot of the Mohegan
Sun Casino. And of course, her abduction by aliens.

TAWNY,
TELL ME TRUE performs on Saturdays at 7:30pm on January 12th, 19th &
26th, 2013. The Laurie Beechman Theatre, downstairs at the West Bank
Cafe, 407 West 42nd Street (at 9th Avenue). For more info call:
212-695-6909.
