An Evening with Lillian Baxter May 23-June 9

"An Evening with Lillian Baxter," starring one of Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre's stage favorite, opens at Louisville's newest theater, Vault 1031.
John Vessels,

Vessels, who has become one of this critic's "Destination Actors" has made himself well known in Indianapolis in B&B productions such as the smash hit Smoke on the Mountain trilogy as the good Reverend Oglethorpe, Chicago and Hello Dolly.

Below is the press release for the performance.

Anyone who has ever seen John Vessels in action will know that the short drive to Louisville is worth the trip. Having seen him portray the deliciously vampy Miss Lillian, I can guarantee it is worth the trip.

Miss Lillian Baxter is Hollywood’s favorite has-been. From her early days at MGM to her short, but fruitful television career on such hit shows as The Thrifty Vittles Happy-Time Song Hour, Life with Maureen, and The Lillian Baxter Show.

Ms. Baxter will sing the songs and tell the stories of her long, arduous climb to the middle. Along for the ride on this musical romp down memory lane is Lillian’s faithful accompanist, international playboy and favorite ex-husband, Corky Weinstopper, played by the multi-talented Jay Schwandt. You simply cannot miss this delightful comedy-cabaret-memoir of the greatest star nobody’s ever heard of--so come share An Evening with Lillian Baxter!
