Yesterday some good friends and I went to Dixie's Tupperware Party which is playing through the end of December at the Garner Galleria theater in the DCPA complex. We had a blast! This is one hysterical show with a heart-felt message at the end and lots of risque humor that makes us laugh at ourselves, and well, others -- in a good natured ribald way.
The Galleria theater is a small theater with drink service. It's a cozy informal way to see a show, especially a comedy. We started out with writing our names on some ID tags with numbers pre printed -- because like all good Tupperware parties Dixie held a couple of raffles.
There was a question and testimonial time and one of the ladies at our table, asked "how do I get my son to return my favorite piece of Tupperware" Dixie had her call her son and she left a message on his cell phone giving him a hard time about 'stealing' that piece of tupperware and how he needed to return it with a yummy store bought treat (because she just knew he couldn't cook, ungrateful son) and a note telling his "mama how much he loves her".
Interspersed with funny quips about lesbians, men who don't appreciate Tupperware, and hookers who will burst into flames if they walk into a church she weaved in the history of Tupperware and how Brownie Wise was an integral part of the success of Tupperware at a time when many people thought that women did not have a head for business. She ended the show with a heart felt message that we are all worthy. Which seems corny but having been to so many direct-marketing home parties, including a Tupperware party or two...this is so part of the experience...just as with her comedy spiel and alternative uses for the product a little bit MORE than your average party.
In hopes that Dixie will again make #1 sales person for Tupperware, I purchased the meat marinating pan (I forgot the name of it, but it's 702 on the order sheet). I will definitely think of the show each time I use it, as well as her 'demonstration' of rubbing spices on a tube steak -- did I mention how off-color this show is...but I enjoy humor like that....and if you do to, I highly recommend this show!
