July 16 — Aging Gracelessly: 50 Shades of Fay

Saturday, July 16. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Show starts at 8 pm.

Pointing webThe Mt. Airy Art Garage is proud to announce Fay Jacobs’ Philadelphia premiere to benefit MAAG in Action! “Aging Gracelessly: 50 Shades of Fay” highlights the author’s insistence that nothing is ever so horrible if it’s worth the story you can tell. Jacobs’ signature humor tackles life, liberty, and lots of LGBT history.  It is comprised of two short acts with an intermission, and based on Jacobs’ four published memoirs, her magazine columns, plus an all-new narrative covering LGBT issues and the fight for marriage equality, Jacobs’ hybrid reading/performance has garnered rave reviews and terrific word of mouth, resulting in sold out shows. Tickets will benefit the MAAG in Action campaign, supporting MAAG’s movement to a new space in 2017! VIP tickets are available — with a front row reserved table for 4, and including a free glass of wine. You won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind, one night only performance, Saturday July 16th at the Mt. Airy Art Garage! Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, or $100 for a front row VIP table. You can purchase tickets below or at the Mt. Airy Art Garage. Doors open at 7:30 pm.

More about Fay:

Fay on stage webIn her solo performance of Aging Gracelessly: 50 Shades of Fay, author and humorist Fay Jacobs has a growing reputation, in the words of one critic, as the “Last Comic Sitting.” Jacobs’ current tour of Aging Gracelessly: 50 Shades of Fay has played to standing room audiences in New Orleans, Provincetown, MA, Ft. Myers, FL., Annapolis, MD, Allentown, PA and her home-base of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and a recently completed Olivia Cruise Lines engagement. She is making her upcoming NYC debut at The Duplex Cabaret on Christopher Street.

Her award winning essay collections—For Frying Out, As I Lay Frying, Fried and True, and Time Fries—plus her columns from Rehoboth Beach, have rewarded Jacobs with a nationwide following of devoted fans, eager ticket-buyers to her performances. So come along for the ride as Fay and her wife Bonnie share life in one boat, two condos, two houses, and an RV, a loving succession of Schnauzers, and being domestic partnered, civil unioned and married. From zip lines to skunk sprays, lesbian invisibility to marriage equality, join Fay Jacobs for a lifetime’s hilarious journey. Terry Plowman, publisher of Delaware Beach Life Magazine says “It’s a brilliant piece of work. Funny — of course! — but also insightful, moving… If you haven’t seen it, don’t miss the chance!”
