Chicago, IL Hell in a Handbag Productions welcomes the return of the sun with Summer Camp, a series of camp-tacular Cabaret readings of works were considering for future seasons. Pitch a tent and sit around our neon camp-fire with us as we present the Chicago premieres of three works sure to help you forget the winter blues.
Limitations of Life From the Running with Scissors theater company in New Orleans comes a wicked parody of the classic Douglas Sirk tearjerker about two mothers; one black, one white and their rebellious daughters. Handbag ensemble members Ed Jones channels post murder trial Lana Turner in this story of culture, race and the choices one makes in life.
Marked Down Woman In the style of Hell in a Handbags Caged Dames, Marked Down Woman tells the tale of Mary Strauber, a smart dame and clip joint hostess for Johnny Vanning, the most ruthless gangster in New York. Things seem to be going swell for until her kid sister visits and gets tangled up in the seedy underpinnings of Marys secret life at Club Intimate. The DA wants Mary to testify against her gangster boss but nobody has ever done that and lived! Dames, gangsters and murder!
Eating Raoul, The Musical Paul and Mary Bland dream of opening a gourmet restaurant but they need money to do that. Why not lure sexual deviants to their apartment and kill them? When their swarthy, sexy janitor Raoul learns of their scheme, he partners with them to help dispose of the bodies. Thats when things get complicated. Based on the cult 1982 film Eating Raoul this musical adaptation is a perfect summer treat for those who enjoy their musical with a twist.
