Broward Center; Dixie's Tupperware Party (reviews)

Dixie's Tupperware Party opened at the Broward Center's Abdo New River Room on April 7, 2010.
Dixie Longate, the fast-talking Tupperware Lady, packed up her catalogues, left her children in an Alabama trailer park and took Off-Broadway  by storm! Now, join Dixie as she travels the country throwing good ol'fashioned Tupperware Parties filled with outrageously funny tales, heartfelt accounts, FREE giveaways, audience participation and the most fabulous assortment of Tupperware ever sold on a theater stage.

Loaded with the most up-to-date products available for purchase, see for yourself how Ms. Longate became the #1 Tupperware seller in the U.S. & Canada as she educates her guests on the many alternative uses she has discovered for her plastic products!

John LaRiviere reviewed for Talkin'
Most assuredly this is not your mother's Tupperware party of the kind begun in the 1950s, but then, times have changed. It is doubtful anyone could look at a Tupperware party in the same way after attending this hilariously bawdy soiree.
Dixie energetically shares stories of her life with the audience, who are her Tupperware party guests. Bedecked with plastic jewelry and a red and white checked outfit, she is ripe with trailer-park charm. She speaks candidly of her three failed marriages and her struggles as a single mother of three: Winona, DeWayne and li'l Absorbine Jr...  No one in the audience is quite safe from Dixie's quick wit and double entendre (this is a PG-13 show), but you find yourself rather hoping you might be picked on as it is so much fun.
At the end of the show, audience members do actually have an opportunity to buy Tupperware from Dixie. Whether or not you buy/use Tupperware, this terribly clever show is just a great time.
Dixie's Tupperware Party plays the Broward Center's Abdo New River Room through April 18.
