Dixie Longate, super Tupperware party person, is in Chicago for 2 months of her stage show / Tupperware party.
From the Chicago Sun-Times "Now you might think that’s a nostalgic blast from the past, but Longate, actor Kris Andersson’s drag persona, has made a career out of selling the plastic products first at home parties and since 2004 in the one-woman show “Dixie’s Tupperware Party.”
It sounds like good, silly fun.
The article also mentions that "Men in drag successfully hawking Tupperware are a bit of phenomenon for the iconic company." and goes on to report that the in 2010, the top seller was Dee W. Ieye (a k a Kevin Farrell).
In this economy, you can always use some extra cash. I wonder if people would come to a Linda Tupperware Party.
