Off Off Broadzway perform “almost sexy sketch comedy” that’s sort of a musical parody of burlesque.
They have a new run of shows coming up at Stage 773 so I sat down with Mandy Whitenack to discuss her character, Ricki Dickyouless.
She tells me about eating dirt as a baby, Indiana’s Pizza King, Flat Top Grill and early musical theater experiences.
