“Shirley and Me” revolves around life versus art at Planet Connections Theatre Festivity


The Clemente (107 Suffolk St.) sets the stage for “Shirley and Me.” Written and performed by Jan Wallace, the one-woman show has audiences laughing while wiping away their tears. Performed as part of the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity, the piece raises money for the National Brain Tumor Society.

3Wallace takes on Willy Russell’s strong-willed “Shirley Valentine” and as she confronts Valentine’s shortcomings and triumphs she’s mirroring her own.  “Shirley and Me” plays the Latea Theater until July 7th so “shirley” don’t miss your chance to see Wallace’s heartfelt performance.
