Claudia Shear's hilarious and touching play weaves together the rise and fall of Mae West, the legendary star of stage and screen, with the awkward romance of Jo and Charlie, two Mae West fanatics in present-day New York. The brash and outspoken Jo is an aspiring actress stuck in a cycle of temp jobs while Charlie, a meek and introspective soul, works in the film archives of the New York Public Library. Though seemingly polar opposites, both are striving for something they see in Mae -- a confidence and finesse that made her into the extravagant, sexy, taboo-breaking public persona that was the hallmark of her fame. But Mae sacrificed much to maintain her public image. What are Charlie and Jo willing to sacrifice to become like her?
Cast: The role of Mae West has been cast. Available roles are Jo (20's-30s woman) and Charlie (20's-40s man); various men in Mae West's life will be double cast.
