In the Boudoir
Matters of the heart can be messy and In The Boudoir delights in making a mess. Summer Shapiro rampages about the stage in a frothy white hooped tutu and sparkly heels, throwing plates of cold spaghetti around and trying desperately to make an impression on — and be impressed by — the opposite sex. In the Boudoir tells a deceptively simple story of a young woman’s love life… and its collision with the audience.
This high energy, high stakes physical comedy show unleashes the audience into a world of romance, spaghetti eating, and pillow fights by one of San Francisco’s most dynamic, risk taking, funny girls. Summer breaks down the axiom that when you are not concerned with looking good, you look really good! She is sexy, charismatic and hilarious. Get ready for a live connection.
In the Press
“In The Boudoir tells a deceptively simple story about a young female clown’s love life. When a date fails to show up to a candlelit dinner for two at the clown’s house, she compensates for her disappointment by engaging the audience in elaborate romantic fantasies. Veering erratically and erotically between the clichés of the helpless, ditzy female and the aggressive femme fatale, Shapiro both explodes stereotypes while making us recognize the universal desires for romantic passion within us all…Shapiro conspired to make the entire audience fall at her feet…a sweetly scathing performer.”
