Good Lessons From Bad Women
When Dorothy Leeds was a child, her mother suggested that she adopt Eleanor Roosevelt as her role model. Generous, strong, and always proper, Roosevelt was indeed a remarkable woman—if maybe a bit safe. Perhaps that’s why Dorothy started to look a bit further afield for her idols. Like Eve, history’s first bad girl. Or Mae West, who became famous for her sly, scandalous quips. Or Kathryn Kelly, who landed on the perfect nickname for her bank-robbing husband: Machine Gun, or occasionally Honey. Or Empress Wu, who was a concubine before she took the throne, or the swashbuckling pirate Anne Bonny. Dorothy brings all of these storied individuals to life In her solo show, setting out to prove the adage that well-behaved women seldom make history.
