Theatre 48: Fat Dancer

A new mini-play called “Fat Dancer” has debuted in St. Louis. Produced by St. Lou Fringe, the script is based on the recollections and experiences of the cast, not all of whom are either dancers, or overweight. Though it is short, "Fat Dancer" has three distinct acts, performed at multiple venues back to back, all in 12 minutes.
