    Summer is hot, but not as hot as Mary Callanan in New Rep’s production of Sophie Tucker The Last of the Red Hot Mamas. Known for her for her bawdy sense of humor and outspoken views on men and relationships, Tucker’s legacy has influenced comediennes and singers alike for generations. During her career, which spanned over seven decades, this gutsy vaudeville entertainer found popularity and fame with self-parody and suggestive songs like “I’m the Last of the Red Hot Mamas,” “The Lady is a Tramp,” “You’ve Gotta See Your Mama,” as well as her signature number “Some of These Days.”

    " Tucker was — distinctively, definitiely — a red hot mama." – New York Times

    " I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor, rich is better." – Sophie Tucker

    Approximately 90 minutes, including intermission.
