THE FACTS OF LIFE: THE LOST EPISODE
That's dancin' fool Edie in a blonde wig! And the writer, Jamie Morris, is featured in the Charlotte Rae role. If his thoroughly demented and hilarious version of Joan Crawford in Mommie Queerest was any indidcation, scenery will be chewed! So if you're in NYC, don't miss this one!
After sold-out runs at Ars Nova and Ace of Clubs last spring and Provincetown in 2005, the wildly popular The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode returns! Written by Jamie Morris, creator of the LA Weekly Theatre Award-winning comedy Mommie Queerest, Facts features an all-male cast as the girls from Eastland (including Edie, last seen on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera opposite Cyndi Lauper and Alan Cumming). As the sitcom's popular theme song proclaimed, "You take the good, you take the bad..." these girls take it all.
The lost episode in question is titled "The Best Little Whorehouse in Peekskill." Budget cuts are threatening to force Mrs. Garrett to leave Eastland. Blair, Tootie, Natalie and Jo are willing to do anything to raise enough money for her to stay. Anything.
