Actress/comedienne/gay rights activist Alison Arngrim (aka Nellie Oleson from “The Little House on the Prairie”) is all over the Seattle Metro area this weekend, doing shows and raising money for marriage equality in Washington State. Let’s run down the “Prairie Bitch’s” schedule, shall we?
TONIGHT, Thursday, September 6: CONFESSIONS OF A PRAIRIE BITCH: A NIGHT OF COMEDY @ Julia’s on Broadway
Alison Arngrim’s one-woman show is part confessional and part Hollywood gossip column, combined with an utterly self-indulgent trip down memory lane for actress and audience alike. The coup de grace comes with the creepy, campy reincarnation of the shrewish Nellie, who emerges from the shadows of Arngrim’s psyche like the spirit of a lost child knocking on a séance table.
Hosted by Mama Tits with a special tap dance performance from Jacob Rodvelt-Gamlieli
Doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7:00.
Ticket Prices are $20 and VIP are $35. Tickets available at the door and atwww.brownpapertickets.com/
