Run time: approximately 90 minutes with no intermission

With her hair bigger than ever, Lauren Weedman (and her alter ego Tami Lisa) and her fine band are ready to take you on a journey of heartbreak, laughter and fresh starts.  “While the plot of the show centers on the issues of being betrayed and getting divorced, the themes are applicable to most anyone, for example, discovering who you really are, or finding yourself alone, or perhaps realizing that you're not who you thought you were. This universality is what makes Lauren Weedman's brand of comedy / performance so funny and so emotional. Whoever you are and whatever your life has been like, I'm betting you'll find something in this show that hits close to home.” – Broadway World
