Faye Lane’s Beauty Shop Stories is a show about the hilarious and heartfelt memories of a fat little Texas Green Bean Queen told through poignant story and stirring song.

Joan Rivers raves, “That girl belongs on Broadway!”
New York Magazine proclaims, “She had them gobbling from the palm of her hand… they were howling, crying, falling in love with her.”
“With her Texas lilt and gentle demeanor, writer-performer Faye Lane serves up a show that’s sweeter than banana MoonPies and RC Cola… Endearing and soaring voiced – a real standout.” – Backstage
“Simultaneously hip and down-home. Her 90-minute performance recounts a series of delicious tales from Lane’s childhood and early career.” – Dallas Morning News
“Rich with characters and detail, she draws the audience into her world. We laugh and cry with her…” – Bust Magazine
Directed by MAC Award winner, Jay Rogers, Faye Lane’s Beauty Shop Stories features music written by Keith Thompson, Larry Rosen and Carol Hall (music and lyrics for The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas).
