(New York, NY) Helena-Joyce Wright (Zora Is My Name!, Amen Corner, Jerry’s Girls, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill) introduces us to E’lan Baxter–Broadway Diva EXTRA ORDINAIRE in this witty, satirical, one-woman show. Wright is at her best as she shares bits of her life as a “liberated white woman” and star of the Broadway stage. “Helena-Joyce Wright is one of those performers who is revered by her peers yet sorely lacking in the name recognition she rightfully deserves…. Ms. Wright’s long-awaited, very tongue-in-cheek, one-woman opus is one part Ntozake Shange at her most dramatic, one part Elaine Stritch at her most liberated, and never anything less than the most singularly-unique package she could possibly offer.” – Andrew Martin, The Martin Report
