We were right in between maturity and death," says Luanne Buckstein, who, along with partner-in-crime Pamela Clifton, created That Woman Show to fill this missing link in women's theater. "It's just something different, and maybe a little more bawdy," explains Buckstein. "It's touted as a broad show, cause we consider ourselves broads. So we do a Weight Watchers sketch and we do Shelly of Galilee, which is a take on finding an old diary in Sanskrit of a woman who has a thing for someone who lived back then. We do some musical stuff, and we do an improvisation where we take an old black-and-white clip and we do our old dialogue.
"Men are allowed," she adds. "As we say, it's funny enough for a man, but made for a woman."
