Sealed For Freshness: Tupperware Party -- Gone Wild
I’m on my way to see it tonight, and Sealed for Freshness is the story of five Mid-West women who believe in being good wives, mothers and neighbors (well, almost).
Dubbed as the original Desperate Housewives, they were raised to trade their dreams, hopes and desires for society's norms...and now they want them back. And only a Tupperware party gone out of control will help them find what they've lost.
By all the accounts I’ve heard from some very reliable sources -- this one is a sharply funny and endearing play that showcases the lives of five women at a 1960s Tupperware party gone haywire. In a mock-up of TV sitcoms and stage comedies, it easily shows how catfights, back-stabbing, and Tupperware can be one hell of a hoot. And these women are said to be a *total* howl, so needless to say, I can’t want to see them tonight.
They’re onstage at:
New World Stages here in NYC, at 340 West 50th Street.
(Oh, and by the way... Opening Night is tomorrow, Feb. 24.)
