Leola Presents Hooray for Ladyland! (Gay History for Straight People) at The Green Room 42 at the YOTEL

Event description:

Hooray for Lady Land! (Gay History for Straight People!) is the latest healing sermon from Leola, your favorite Kelly Clarkson-worshipping, senior citizen, redneck lesbian who is on a mission to serve up some much-needed national group therapy, one audience at a time. Created by Will Nolan, this edition of the show, smack in the middle of PRIDE, is Leola's celebration of our big gay world, all of it, everything from GAY to Z. Take her slightly arthritic & well-moisturized hand & skip through Leola's interpretation of gay history. Be proud! Be love! Be YOU! There will be jokes, snacks, prizes, and who knows, one lucky audience member will win a gently used straight fella, based on availability. What a bargain! Winner of the Long Island City Flying Solo Festival two years in a row, Leola has appeared across the country in fringe festivals, regional theaters, and middle-aged birthday parties bringing you what has been described as Dame Edna's Hillbilly cousin giving a TED Talk from the Bible Belt. The 2018 Atlanta Fringe Festival called Leola a "...touching performance," and [a] "fantastic character with a great connection to the audience, wildly hilarious, deeply intellectual and poignant." Hooray for Lady Land! (Gay History for Straight People!) is part of Leola's residency at The Green Room 42. Every other month, she shares another of her adventures in Lady Land, admonishing us to embrace who we are, live our best lives, and wear our colors proudly (but only if they are seasonally correct!) This is a comic monologue most appreciated by an adult audience. It runs 85 minutes. Food and drink available but there is never a minimum at the Green Room 42.
