THEATRE BRIEFS by scott leonard

DIXIE’S HAPPY HOUR She’s back! Everyone’s favorite Alabama redhead is ready to

entertain, enthrall and maybe even a shock a few fans and newbies alike with her new streaming show Dixie’s Happy Hour. If you’ve seen Dixie’s smash off-Broadway hit, Dixie’s Tupperware Party, or spent time with her in Dixie’s Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding a Mechani- cal Bull (and 16 other things I learned while I was drinking last Thursday), then you know Dixie’s sweet charm and infectious southern drawl is going to keep you in stitches. Performances are virtual at 8 p.m. Tuesday, February 9 through Sunday, February 21. Yes, Dixie gone digital to bring you 95 minutes that include some new stories as she’s mixing up a few cocktails and challenging you

to find the happy hours that are right in front of you, but you may be overlooking. What do you get when you mix gin, rum, vodka and tequila? According to Dixie, if it doesn’t lead to you doing something where you have to scroll through your photos from last night to find who you need to bake apology cupcakes for, then if you squint in just the right way and change your focus, you’ll see the glory in you that makes you the remarkable person you are. Dixie loves a good value, so tickets are $35 per household, perfect

for gathering in small and distanced family groups in the comfort of your living room or as one of simultaneous cocktail parties with festive friends in other locations.
