BIG HAIR: A Rad and Wild Love Affair
Gilda and Gene are at it again! This one woman show, performed and written by Maegan Mandarino, is musical dreamed about the short lived love affair of two comedic legends. Presented by their alter egos, Dr. Frankenstein and Roseanne Roseannadanna, we witness a relationship that - over 20 years later - still resonates with the modern heart.
Better yet! When you buy a ticket, a portion of your purchase will directly benefit Gilda's Club NYC - support groups for those who are impacted or have been impacted by cancer. Gene Wilder founded these nationwide clubhouses when his wife and SNL comedienne, Gilda Radner, lost her battle with ovarian cancer.
