Harbor Currents-Theatre/Film–July 27, 2012
Suzanne Westenhoefer performs, at 8 p.m. July 28, at the Long Beach Center Theater. In the past year, she’s ended up on the cutting room floor of a movie in post-production, gotten a divorce, re-entered the insanity of the dating world, all of which have created more laughter-inducing opportunities than she ever thought possible.
Suzanne’s new material is based on her ever-changing view of life after…well, everything. She’s a brand-new woman around town with striking insights based on a jilted year that has finally – thankfully — ended. Stick with her and she’ll take you for a ride on the wild side with plenty of Pinot to keep itinteresting.
