What is Hair Theater?
Hair Theater, (hair the.a.ter or the.a.tre), proper n:
1. A type of theater where a wacky and slightly aging showgirl tells the hilarious stories of her life through tales of health, beauty, and hairdos (and those of famous people), and somehow amuses and inspires sold out audiences,
2. A method of performing where the show is well rehearsed but in a workshop style including interaction with the audience, and jumps to new themes when the Head Humorician decides it's time,
3. A theatrical format where humor and stories have the audience feeling like they've been to a restorative therapy session or pep rally or just ate a delicious banana split that contained absolutely none of the calories but all of the taste.
What can you expect to gain from your 'enrollment' (read: attendance) at the Countess of Spit Curl's latest hair piece called BEAUTY SCHOOL?
You will gain the following: Knowledge of the secret to life.
And here it is: More than a pretty face, perfect figure, or a smashing Hairdo (or hair for that matter), it's all about acting on what you were placed here TO DO, and how you give back for all you have been given.
But you should still come to the show since more secrets will be revealed! And you will receive a FREE FACELIFT without knives and without leaving your chair. You're welcome!
How will the Countess and Head Humorician Pat help us discover our true beauty and why the hair gods would always cruelly punish us each school year on picture day?
The hair gods are a fickle lot and must be appeased with humor, storytelling, and dancing and singing. Pat Wynn Brown will help with that. (see this video)
The answer to your existential question regarding your true beauty will come to you during the show as dramatically clear as Pat's red bouffant is high. In fact, you've known how gorgeous you are all along. Pat is just there for eye candy. Graduation follows the performance 'class.'
Are BEAUTY SCHOOL! dropouts and bad girls who should have spent time in reform school welcome?
Of course. Pat agrees with Father Flanagan of Boys Town who once said, "There is no such thing as a bad boy."
Pat's take on this is: "There's no such thing as a lost girl or one who can't possibly find her way back to her true path and self respect. We do that through the stories of shared experience, laughing at the absurdities of life, and loosening up a little so that inner 5 year old can share her wise insights into who we really are and how good everything really is. Really. Even though there may be loads of bad stuff swirling around you."
