Mae West Show Hits The Summit of Uptown Oct. 22
A Tribute to Mae West will be presented by Mary Anne Burkhalter at The Summit of Uptown, 10 N. Summit (at Touhy) in Park Ridge, on Monday, Oct. 22, at 1:30 p.m. Guests are invited to the free event. Light refreshments will be served.
Burkhalter has portrayed Mae West across the country for nine years with a show that involves the audience in comedic skits and takes great pride in keeping the great comedienne's work alive. Notorious for her snappy wit and controversial characters, Mae West rose from vaudeville to Broadway to Hollywood, where she became an international celebrity and established a legacy for which she was named one of the top 15 actresses of the century and the "most quoted woman in history."
