About this show

In this hilarious send-up of women in prison 'B' movies of the 50's, Sweet Mary Eleanor-framed for a crime she didn't commit-lands in the Greenwich Village Women's House of Detention. Presided over by a sadistic prison matron with a taste for female flesh, Mary Eleanor enters this multicultural den of vice and ends up hardened and cynical before her time....just like in the movies. West Hollywood's Momma takes on the role of the evil Matron with a taste for female flesh, a role originally played by Divine. Women Behind Bars played sold out audiences in both New York in the 70's and in Ron Link's classic Los Angeles production at the Roxy in the 80s with Lu Leonard as the Matron.
