“Dixie’s Tupperware Party” was such a plastic-fantastic hit two years ago, CLO Cabaret has invited the bawdy, boozin’ belle back as a repeat treat.
Here’s what the Post-Gazette said in September 2012:
“If Dixie Longate knows one thing, it’s that sex sells, and, honey, just wait till you hear her sales pitch. Now, don’t get your knickers in too much of a twist — “Dixie’s Tupperware Party” is just what the name says. The iconic plastic containers are for sale, and there’s a party going on, but Dixie (aka show creator Kris Andersson) certainly puts a new spin on the traditional Tupperware lady, emphasis on lady.”
The top Tupperware seller in the U.S. and Canada will tell all about the product’s, um, alternative uses starting at 7:30 tonight and running through Oct. 12 (weekend times are 7:30 Thursday-Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday) at the Cabaret at Theater Square, Downtown. Tickets are $39.75-$50.75, VIP seating onstage is $50, at pittsburghclo.org or 412-456-6666.
