Dixie Longate: Cherry Bombs & Bottle Rockets
Feb 3 – 4, 2023
7:30 p.m., Saturday matinee 2 p.m.
Starlight Theatre in Swope Park
Do you ever wake up one morning at 2:30 in the afternoon to discover that there is a global pandemic that makes your kids’ schools shut down, so you have to raise them yourself? What the hell kind of nonsense is that? It’s in these moments of crisis that you really find out what you’re made of. If there’s one thing, we all have in common, it’s that we are fundamentally different people than we were just two years ago. What have you learned? What did you try? How did you cope? How heavy was your recycle bin from all the empty bottles? When life seems to get too crazy and the world is crapping on your lawn, it’s time to strap on your big-girl boots, grab your breakfast vodka, and light off a few CHERRY BOMBS AND BOTTLE ROCKETS. There’s nothing better than walking into your new self with a bang!
The new show from DIXIE LONGATE is a web of storytelling that only America’s favorite southern redhead can create. Catch up with everyone’s favorite Tupperware lady in her first-ever stand-up show where she talks about everything from Loretta Lynn to alien abductions, pogo-sticking to “safe words” in that rapid-fire delivery that has made her an international sensation.
