WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Follies of Grandeur: Inside the Girls of the Ivar Theater is a new play by Ross MacLean, directed by Mark Finley. Hollywood's Ivar Theater was an infamous dive -- and by 1978, the last standing Burlesque house in the United States. Lewd and notorious in its day, the Ivar inspired lyrics in the songs of Tom Waites, and photographer Garry Winogrand's images of the Ivar strippers have been displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Playwright Ross MacLean was the Ivar's stage manager and spotlight operator for two years. Follies of Grandeur resurrects the Ivar theater, the strippers who performed there and the men who loved them, as it follows the career path of a young drifter who finds a home on the Ivar stage. Appropriate For Ages: 18 and over
