Following on the success of the one-night Vagina Monologues presentation earlier this year, MY Place is bringing Vancouvers Full Figure Theatre Company to Whistler for a July 27 performance of Way Too Blonde.
Billed as a "quick witted cabaret that satirizes female stereotypes in the media while weaving an intensely funny fabric of social comment," Way Too Blonde features several "situations" including: a sexual harassment trial, a haircut and a game show called Grovelling for a Groom.
Londons Time Out magazine calls Way Too Blonde "snappy, funny and incisive, with a clear target which it ruthlessly attacks. They bombard us with a rapid fire of sketch, song and biting burlesque."
The Full Figure Theatre Company has toured Canada, the U.S., New Zealand, England, Scotland, Hong Kong and Australia. They were voted Best o the Fringe in Melbourne and Pick of the Day at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Tickets for the July 27 show at Millennium Place are $32, which includes the 45-minute performance, hors doeuvres and two glasses of wine. Non-beverage tickets are available for $26. Cabaret time is 7 p.m.
