Why do we know more about Kim Kardashian than Abigail Adams?
Writer/Performer/Cultural Herstorian Amy Simon knew something needed to be done when her ten-year-old daughter came home from school, planning on doing her women's history report on Cher.
Going back and forth from the past to the present, this Mom On A Mission poignantly finds the funny, as she chronicles the struggles and accomplishments of our unheralded, unknown and forgotten heroines whose courage and strength inspire her as she raises and enlightens her two daughters. Simon spent years researching diaries, letters, publications, and biographies. She uses theater, history, multi-media, and good old-fashioned story telling and created this unique herstorical edutaining theatrical presentation. It's all there in a Gal-A-Palooza honoring Female America!
Concessions available in the lobby. All proceeds benefit the theatre.
