Tig Notaro is busier than she’s ever been doing stand-up, appearing frequently on Conan, recording her popular podcast Professor Blastoff and appearing in movies like In a World, Shreveport, and Walk of Shame. Many people know her from her hilarious story about a series of run-ins with ’80s pop star Taylor Dayne featured on This American Life. Then, in 2012, Notaro endured a series of back-to-back health crises and personal tragedies that would put most careers on indefinite hold. Instead, she took to the stage. A tweet from Louis C.K. the next day read: “I’ve seen a handful of truly great, masterful standup sets. One was Tig Notaro….”  The set was recorded and became the best-selling comedy album of the year and nominated for a Grammy.  Look for her upcoming Showtime special Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro, in which she’ll perform comedy in peoples’ basements, backyards, and barns.

The devised, one-man show by Robin Marcotte, Dottie, stunningly examines how people suffering from dementia perceive the world. Dottie received its premiere in Philadelphia, where it garnered critical praise. Philadelphia Weekly observed, “This aerial ballet is just one of many memorable images in Marcotte’s rich and rewarding play,” and the Currier Post exclaimed, “And when Dottie, begowned again, dances on air with a mirror, the show achieves a singular, and singularly heartbreaking, power.” You’ll be moved by Dottie’s resilience, touched by her perseverance and inspired by her determination to make sense of her diminishing world. (Dottie is made possible in part by a grant from the Smart Family Foundation.)
