So I have been working on my one woman show for 2 years.
And now, Wonder Woman: A How-To Guide For Little Jewish Girls is finally up and running. What a rewarding feeling! The first review is in and it is shining so I thought I would share.
The show is about how the TV show Wonder Woman, starring Lynda Carter, inspired me as a kid and how the icon continues to give me guidance to this day.
It was 1976 when the first pilot episode aired. The first full season was set during World War II – this held a special interest for me for 2 reasons.
1- My dad designed weaponry in that war – in fact he helped develop the Bazooka.
2- In Hebrew School they were teaching us about the Holocaust.
And there was Wonder Woman on Friday night kicking Nazi Ass!
Okay after she breaks out of her straps – she kicks Nazi ass!
Here is the info on the show – there’s one week left. If you are in NY I hope you can make it!!
