"Lingerie Shop" proves quite revealing

It's ba-aaack. Last night, MDC hosted a staged reading of Bryan Colley's one-act, male-fantasy farce Lingerie Shop, directed by Tara Varney and featuring three actors reprising roles they originated in the show's 2009 Kansas City Fringe Festival debut. Among the eager audience members were a few who'd also seen the original--and the post-show talkback included some lively discussion about how the play's still relevant messages resonated, albeit a bit differently, six years later.

In addition to Tara, gratitude goes out to the cast and crowd that made last night's reading possible and successful, including Amy Hurrelbrink, Marcie Ramirez, Kelli Morford, Melody Butler, Stefanie Wienecke, and Jeff Berger.
