NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, November 10, Grammy, Emmy, Tony and Webby award-winning and nominated songwriter, performer, visual artist, multimediaist, director, collector, social artist, party thrower, co-author of The Color Purple, and "the most interesting woman you've never heard of" (The Washington Post) Allee Willis will host Gala 55 at La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club and perform her live show, 'Ba-de-ya Baby! Or: How I Learned to Love the Theatre.' Allee, often referred to as "The Queen Of Kitsch," calls this once in a lifetime multi-media performance - and her New York City debut - "An Experience in Experimental Dinner Theatre." The evening of cocktails, dinner, performance, thrift shop auction (Allee appears on the hit TV series, Storage Wars), and after-party will celebrate La MaMa's 55th season. It begins at 6pm at the Ellen Stewart Theatre (66 East 4th Street, 2nd Floor). Tickets can be purchased here: http://lamama.org/2016-fall-gala/. Honorary chairs for this "new party performance" by Allee Willis, directed by Jason Trucco, include Bette Midler, Pamela Adlon, Lily Tomlin & Jane Wagner, Buck Henry, and Marsha Norman. Willis has entertained these honorary chairs, and many others like Cyndi Lauper, Cher, The Pointer Sisters, RuPaul and Mark Cuban at Willis Wonderland, her historic house in Los Angeles - the former MGM party house. Willis' always-sold-out live shows draw rave reviews as she celebrates her life in music, art, and kitsch with her greatest hits sing-alongs, stories, special guests, motorized art, games, videos, and a 12-course meal, all delivered with her signature party vibe. Of Willis' parties, People Magazine has written, "She throws parties that are works of art in themselves."
