About this show

From winning her (very Southern) high school beauty pageant to picking the perfect outfit to wear to her divorce, Faith Salie is the ultimate approval seeker — an "approval junkie," if you will. A comedian and Emmy Award-winning journalist best known for her roles on NPR's Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me! and CBS News Sunday Morning, Salie has returned home to Georgia to adapt her memoir into the heartfelt (and disturbingly hilarious) one-woman show Approval Junkie at the Alliance Theatre. Through her witty, candid, and sometimes heartbreaking recollections, Salie reflects on a lifetime of looking for validation in all the wrong places — and reveals how she finally won gold stars from her toughest critic…herself.
