AMERICAN BEAUTY SHOP By Resident Playwright Dana Lynn Formby
Directed by Megan Shuchman
April 28 – June 5, 2016
It’s hard to pull yourself up by your bootstraps in this economy—Sue should know. It’s harder when you’ve got kids, even whip-smart, talented ones like Judy. Sue has big dreams for both her basement beauty shop and her daughter, who’s anxiously waiting for a letter from MIT that could change her life. Armed with tough love, combative humor and an uncompromising work ethic, Sue is struggling to balance her own livelihood and Judy’s future. A heartfelt play about the true cost of dreams.
The play is also being published Methuen Drama, a division of Bloomsbury Publishing.
