With daddy as a hustler and a Princeton Graduate, Shana Solomon's upbringing was quite confusing. No wonder she has a hilarious story to tell:
"I asked my dad if it was cool to tell the world about our life on stage." He said, 'Well, a ni*%as got to come clean some day.' Besides he wasn't Pablo Escobar, he was more like Saul Silver from Pineapple Express with a Richard Pryor attitude.
When was the last time you heard an inspirational story that will make you quit your day job & follow your passion, from a young sexy woman raised by a hustling daddy with his masters in political science?
The Closet Bitch is a one-woman show that takes us into the mind of a girl from the Bronx, who learned how to conform (like being manipulated by her father to keep her mouth shut about his mistress and hustling lifestyle) and feared success because of her environment. It's a hilariously raw and dark inspirational tale, which is vividly told through the stories of how she lost her virginity, dealt with the stereotypes in corporate America, of how one conquers their fears of success and speaks out amongst a population who were taught to survive in a 9-5 world and turn the other cheek when opportunity knocks.
The Closet Bitch was developed in 2011 in Matt Hoverman's class. Soon after, excerpts of The Closet Bitch were performed all over New York City such as Naked angels, Women's Conferences, The Theater Lab and The Muffin Show. The Closet Bitch was finally performed in 2012 in its entirety at The Bridge Theater.
