A SPECIAL MUSICAL EVENT
Nicole Parker (Broadway's “Wicked,” Fox's MadTV) is back as Jillane Jenkins*. Let's hope she can still fit into her leotard! Come on over for an evening of self-indulgent celebrity pain and light choreography!
Tues. April 10 at 8:00pm
The Story: Best known for her work as lovable secretary Callie Carter from the hit 1970's sitcom, "She's Got a Job!", Ms. Jenkins returns to New York to bring you her life story in song and style! Referred to as a "tour de force" by her fourth husband, and "...a... [really]...@#$ing.....show!", by the fifth hour of the Today Show, 'Suitcase' takes you from the heights of Jillane's fame, to the lows of her painful struggle with her father's eczema.
