DIRTY BLONDE explores the phenomenon of the legendary Mae West, one of America’s most enduring and controversial pop culture icons. Part Mae West docudrama, part love story, and part vaudeville, the story centers on Jo, an aspiring actress who admires West for her determination to beat the odds. She, along with two male cast members, regale audiences with re-enactments of the turns of West’s showbiz career in a celebration of Mae West’s independence and bravely bawdy spirit.
