DRESS PERFORMANCE THEATRE SERIES
“Oh But Wait … There’s More!”


Starring Kim Coles
Friday, 7 & Saturday, 8 @ 8:15pm
Clarence Muse Café Theatre  |  $16.50

There’s more to KIM COLES than Synclaire James-Jones. This solo performance is a trek to stand-up comedy, plus-size modeling, career decline, economic woes, clinical depression and being an African American woman in Hollywood. Moving and yet funny, Coles relates how her middle-class Brooklyn upbringing and grade-school gravitas turned into class-clown supremacy and high school popularity. Hosted by Board Member Gwendolyn Hunt.
