Here is a film clip from my performance of my one woman show "MAE DAY" live at the Slipper Room in New York City.
December 3, 2014
What's it all about?
Everyone will agree that Mae West was ahead of her time as an artist, as an American woman, pre-Feminist, body positive with business savvy. But part of what is so fascinating is seeing - through Mae's eyes - how much has not actually changed. Sexism and Misogyny has donned different drag, but it's still all around us. And now she's here in our era.
Thank you for visiting my site.

NEXT PERFORMANCE OF "MAE DAY" is APRIL 22nd at Slipper Room!
Lythion Music, the husband and wife duo made up of award winning actress and producer Ilyana Kadushin and award winning composer and producer James Harrell, perform a developing work of original music and storytelling through the eyes of Mae West; it's a candid show about being liberated through good sex, health, and ESP.
