Additional performances on February 23 and March 1 have been added to the run of My Tawny Valentine at the Laurie Beechman Theatre, which runs February 17-March 2.

Written by and starring Obie Award-winning playwright/performer David Drake, this drag tragicomedy with music is directed by Tony Award nominee Robert La Fosse, and features musical direction by Lance Cruce, original music by Trevor Kuprel, and video by Ned Stresen Reuter.

My Tawny Valentine marks the unheralded return of Tawny Heatherton, a lovably eccentric showbiz survivor and "one hit wonder" of the disco zeitgeist of the early 1980s. Tawny brings her singular blonde-swept brand of sunny, funny optimism while recalling stories of wandering the globe performing her disco "hit," her headline-grabbing turn as the unwitting "Pyro Girl of Long Island," her short-lived stint as a "Hee-Haw Honey," and reuniting with her long-lost aunt Joey Heatherton at the Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino.
