Stage Rights Musical of the Week: Thanks A Lot - My Gratitusical!

Actors and actresses have a lot of people to thank for their time in the spotlight, and no one knows this better than actress-singer-sugar-baby-former-addict-mother-of-David-Crosby’s-baby-via-IVF Miss Beryl Swiver. This unstoppable (she literally won’t let you leave) performer gives a one-of-a-kind performance in this highly irreverent cabaret musical memoir recounting stories through her turbulent childhood, awkward sex education from dubious sources, to the start of her acting career, all leading up to… wherever she is now. With the help of her accompanist Richard, Beryl sings and dances and vagina-jokes her 21st century blues to smithereens, fully embracing her true self— cease and desists and all. But don’t take it from us, take it straight from the horse’s foul mouth, because no one tells Miss Beryl Swiver’s story like Miss Beryl Swiver. Though she may seem a little rough around the edges, we know she’d be thankful that you listened— even if you didn’t have a choice.
