The Woman: A Stunning Tribute by Philip blue owl Hooser
Not the movie "The Women," but a stunning recreation/tribute by Philip blue owl Hooser. It's your gay aunt's Jungle Red -- not the pitiful remake. Not seen since its Late Night Theatre premiere in 2004, this one-man show (with a whole lot of lady parts) will resurface at the Fishtank Performance Studio June 1-4th, 2012!

Hooser portrays nearly 100 characters, all women, with the help of quite a few hats. A tribute to the original 1939 film "The Women," which is a black and white camp classic (with color insert), "The Woman" recreates the satire on High Society in bitchy detail. Known for dialogue that drips with venom, this movie is a significant piece of Gay History and Hollywood Gossip -- all of which will be revealed, from the feuds to the injury, from the "Lavender Mafia," to the uncredited screen debut!

The story revolves around New York City's 1%, as gossip ruins the marriage of Mary Haines with a little help from her frenemy Sylvia Fowler and, of course, Crystal Allen, the girl behind the perfume counter who has her hooks in Mary's husband. The performances by Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russel, Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, and over a hundred other actresses are indelible -- and they seem to be loving every celluloid minute.

What the press has said:

"Hooser plows through the film at a breathless pace -- by the end, one can only hope there's an oxygen tank in the wings." -- Steve Walker, Pitch Magazine, 10 June 2004

So, if you can't see the Spiderman musical, you still might see an actor die on stage!
