Housewives take stage
November 1, 2012
Off Broadstreet Theatre presents its latest musical comedy revue, “Accidentally Famous,” which opens Friday.
After the failure of their TV reality show, “The Real Exes of Culver City,” four former wives and lovers of the same music producer, known only “accidentally” through tabloid coverage of their lives, have formed an “inspirational” singing group called Accidentally Famous. Realizing that success will only come from working together for the common good, the women “re-package” their experiences into a multi-faceted self-improvement program, which includes their CD, an exercise video, a calendar and their book, “Selling Your Book,” according to its author, Off Broadstreet owner John Driscoll.
“Accidentally Famous” features the talents of well known Off Broadstreet performers Liz Larsen as the betrayed first wife, Nancy Keith as the trophy wife known for her excesses, Kris Stepanian as the heartfelt ex-girlfriend and newcomer Rebekah Martino as the tough street kid turned pop singer. Musical selections are varied, from the Andrews Sisters, The Four Tops and The Supremes to Donna Summer, The Go-Go’s and Lady Gaga. With plenty of laughs and great music, “Accidentally Famous” is suitable for all audiences.
It’s an uplifting pre-holiday evening to make you feel good, said Driscoll.
Performances are at 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 2 through Dec. 22. Those who attend the first two weekends get $2 off the regular ticket price of $25. After Nov. 10, standard admission is $25. There is a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee Nov. 25 and Dec. 2 for $23. Parties of 12 or more get one free seat.
