Oh, But Wait, There's More!
Written & performed by Kim Coles, directed by Scotch Ellis Loring.
Headliner "FROM THE BEST of THE FEST!"
Best known for her roles on In Living Color, Frasier and Living Single, actor-comedian Kim Coles chronicles the ebb and flow of her showbiz rise, with Hollywood-insider stories, multimedia components and an interpretive dance number only Coles could perform. After the hit Fox TV comedy Living Single got cancelled, Coles realized there was nothing that compared to the free food, personalized parking spaces and sweet perks of showbiz success. As pilot seasons came and went and residual checks all got spent, Coles broke down and figured out a way to find true meaning beyond the glam of TV cameras and red carpets. Hear her story -- and watch the dance moves that accompany it.
Oh, But Wait, There's More was part of "FROM THE BEST OF THE FEST" presented by the L.A. Women's Theatre Festival & the Fremont Centre Theatre. This powerful benefit highlights some of LAWTF's multicultural and multi-disciplined performers from 1996-2013. The Annual Festival honors the achievement of extraordinary women in theatre.
