[NoHo Arts District, CA] – After performing earlier this month at United Solo Festival in New York City, MaryLee Herrmann brings her highly acclaimed solo show, Schmaltzy & Princie: Diary of a Not-So-Great Daddy’s Girl, directed and developed with Jessica Lynn Johnson, back to Los Angeles for one last performance on February 23 at Whitefire Theatre’s Solofest 2023.
About Schmaltzy & Princie: Diary of a Not-So-Great Daddy’s Girl
MaryLee has never been able to wholeheartedly commit to, or finish, well… anything. Even with her daddy’s support. MaryLee’s dad, ‘Schmaltzy’ has been her best friend her entire life, always there for her. Her mother, not so much. Now in her fifties, with a Sundance screenwriting competition deadline looming that could be a life-changer, she clings to Anaïs Nin’s words, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” She has less than three days to “blossom”, or however long a post-menopausal woman takes, MaryLee needs to overcome her fears, stop dreaming and start doing—and it all begins with this script. But before she can succeed, a few people in her life are going to have to go.
