MILDRED FIERCE! Varla Jean Merman and Boston’s Acclaimed Gold Dust Orphans in NYC

musical romp that tells the story of a single mother, alone and
afraid. And
the men in her life? A shiftless ex-husband, a shady realtor, a cold-hearted playboy.
But by baking her way to the top, Mildred soon has it all! The world is her oyster,
and the city, her cracker. Save for one little thing…
she’s got a daughter who
makes Adolph Hitler look like Anne Frank!


Watch all the glorious melodrama of
“Mildred Pierce” explode all over the stage as The Gold Dust Orphans
bring you their brand new musical parody sprinkled with
splashy songs, tap
dancing pies, bawdy “Waitress” lingo and more surprises than you can
shake a rolling pin at!

filled parody machine, the cast of MILDRED

Jordan in NY at the Little Schubert in spring 2011 prompting The New York Times
to rave, “If Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman had stood in front of the right
pair of funhouse mirrors, they might have resembled Ms. Merman and Mr. Jordan
in stature as well as comedic talent”. 
She guest starred on Ugly Betty in the final season of the show and was
also featured on Bravo’s Project Runway Season 5 as the winning model for the
show’s drag challenge. She has filled cabarets and concert halls across the
