In a story spanning decades, humor, and heartbreak, Shelley Miller explores the complexity of love and family. On Valentine’s Day evening, come hear her #StickTogether tale of velcro, romance, and commitment.
Back in the olden days, Shelley Miller was a singer/actress in the musical theater. When motherhood beckoned, she put down her microphone and picked up pen and paper. Four kids later, Shelley has stories to share and songs to sing. She holds a BFA in Musical Theater from the Cincinnati Conservatory.
The eternally cool and effervescent Mandy Aguilarreturned to the Oral Fixation stage, and invited the audience for a trip down memory lane with a story of the “never-ending slumber party” of life with her best friend, Diana. Mandy and Diana were cut from the same cloth: badass, aspiring artists who favored counter-cultural idea, while still following the rules and making good grades in school. Through a powerful female friendship, founded on championing one another instead of competing, Mandy and Diana succeeded in upholding the spirit of their non-conformist “2.5 Girl” pact — even if they failed at the literal letter of it. It was an excellent reminder that you can grow up, get an office job, get married and have a baby while still being a badass.
She never wanted to grow up, settle down in the suburbs, work for “the man” or have kids. And next week, Mandy Aguilar talks about her rebellious youth,
on the Oral Fixation stage, for “Two Peas in a Pod.”
