The Huntsville Public Library is pleased to present Mary Anne Burkhalter’s “Tribute to Mae West” on Wednesday, February 11, from 2-3 p.m., in the Library’s Community Room.
Ms. Burkhalter has portrayed Miss West across the country for over 20 years, bringing rare songs and material to the show, and takes great pride in keeping the comedienne’s work alive in her “Tribute to Mae West.” Her comedy carries over into the audience, as she employs a unique brand of walk-around humor and involves audience members in on-stage comedic skits.
Mae West rose to international stardom, and in 1932 was the highest-paid woman in America. Ms. West was notorious for her snappy wit and controversial characters, and notable for writing all her own material.
Mary Anne Burkhalter was raised in Houston, where her first role was playing Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz at the Alley Theatre. She has since performed from coast to coast and overseas, and is currently writing and performing more than a dozen musical shows.
The Huntsville Public Library is located at 1219 13th Street. Contact Denise Tilson at 936-291-5471 for more information.
