My Time with the Lady
My Time With the Lady recounts the life and times of The Lusty Lady Peepshow through the eyes of a young employee, Ron Richardson. From 1987 to 1992, Richardson worked on and off as a cashier, janitor, doorman, and occasional bouncer at Seattle's Lusty Lady Theater. Managed by  women, the Lady was unique in the male dominated adult entertainment industry of its era.

It was the dream job for a young man from Walla Walla. He received the education of a lifetime as he became familiar with the inner workings of an adult establishment and befriended the array of astonishing characters who worked on its stages and behind the scenes. During those years Richardson watched the Lady change as First Avenue evolved from a seedy waterfront district known as "Flesh Avenue" into an upscale yuppie stretch of condos, restaurants and large art institutions. Finally,in 2010, the Lusty Lady ran out of steam and succumbed to a one-two punch of recession and free Internet porn.

Richardson blends comedy, pathos and business analysis in a series of stories that explore the sometimes seamy but always fascinating world of The Lusty Lady. He creates a portrait as brash, lively and unusual as the Lady's infamous marquee.

Co-written and directed by former Seattle Weekly Theatre Writer John Longenbaugh (Scotch and Donuts, The Man Who Was Thursday, How to be Cool, Arcana) and also starring Kirsten Lauzon, My Time with the Lady is a valentine to a true Seattle original, a peep show where the dancers worked cooperatively, where the original owner never stopped innovating, and where a young man found himself in love with not only a whole complement of dancers, but with the institution that provided their paycheck.
