Dixie Longate, America’s favorite Tupperware lady, got her start making audiences giggle when she started selling the iconic plastic bowls as part of the condition of her parole. She needed a job in order to get her kids back. After being offered a cocktail at her first party, she knew this was the job for her. She took her home parties onto the stage and in 2007, the self titled “Dixie’s Tupperware Party” opened off-Broadway to delighted audiences and critics alike garnering her a Drama Desk Nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance. Partially because she wanted to get away from both her kids and the law, Dixie went out on the road with her show which opened in the Fall of 2008 and has become one of the longest-running off-Broadway tours in history.
In 2014, Dixie premiered her new show, “Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding A Mechanical Bull (and 16 other things I learned while I was drinking last Thursday)” at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. This show about finding your own adventures and learning valuable life lessons from the Honky Tonk started touring concurrently with “Dixie’s Tupperware Party.”
