Two Great Shows by Tomatoes for Tomatoes
March 2. Ripe, Wendy Hammers One Woman Show
Up for a lively dance Tomatoes? Well, you can have a juicy dance with words from a seasoned woman, Wendy Hammers, in her one woman show “Ripe”. Gotta love the name! It’s a must see. So, hurry to get your tickets Tomatoes before it’s sold out, Gals!
It’s a fun comedy but goes deep and serves as a wakeup call to embrace your own magnificent life as a woman. 9/11, the loss of a close friend to cancer, the end of a 14-year marriage, her own battle with pancreatic cancer and beating it shined a huge light on the fleeting nature of life and put Wendy on a journey to rebuild and reinvent to celebrate the gorgeous life she has right now. “Ripe” tells that story. Deborah Vankin from the LA Times says, “Part stand up confessional; part booty shakin’ biography, ripe is an examination of life re-invented midstream, and a reminder that the time to celebrate our bodies…and our lives…is right now.”
And Emmy Award Winning Actress, Camryn Manheim, also loved “Ripe. “In your journey of self-acceptance, you give other women permission to liberate themselves as well. Any women struggling with loving their bodies should see it. So that means every woman we know. And girl…you can dance!” Sounds like this play by Wendy Hammers will resonate with you and inspire all Tomatoes!
