The Cell Theatre, Albuquerque’s boutique home for quality live performance, is proud to present the world premiere of “Don’t Call Me Young Lady!”, a one-woman show conceived and performed by comedian Carolyn Meyer. The performance, directed by Barry Simon, will run on three consecutive Sundays.
"Don’t Call Me Young Lady!" describes what happens when a silver-haired woman, looking back over the people and the events in her life, demonstrates that the journey can offer new beginnings, totally turning one’s expectations upside down—including her own.
Carolyn Meyer is a writer-turned-comedian who, after more than sixty books for young readers, has turned her storytelling talents to the stage. Carolyn came to New Mexico in 1978 as a writer-in-residence at the Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, intending to stay for a month, to work on a novel for adults (it was never published). Eight months later, informed that she had overstayed her time, she moved to Santa Fe; five years later she arrived in Albuquerque. Her novel, Diary of a Waitress: The Not-So-Glamorous Life of a Harvey Girl, published in 2015, is set in New Mexico. Her most recent novel, Girl with Brush and Canvas: Georgia O’Keeffe, American Artist, will be out in February. In Don’t Call Me Young Lady! Carolyn makes her debut as a solo performer.
