Laura Freeman stars in "Raunchy Little Musical" at The Skokie Theatre, December 29 and 30, 7:30p.m. It‘s a hilarious "adults only" musical play. Before Amy Schumer or Sarah Silverman...before Joan Rivers or Roseanne, Belle Barth was the original, irreverent female comic, totally deflating anyone who dared to take sex seriously. Belle Barth burst on the 1950s Miami Beach scene as the “female” Lenny Bruce. The self-proclaimed founder of “Ball Breakers Anonymous,” this purveyor of dirty jokes with an attitude that made her off-limits for Ed Sullivan, Belle topped the charts of the Adult Only record section. Her records were the forbidden fruit of the fifties—with 3 million of her “party records” serving as sex ed for baby boomers. Her night club act SRO from Miami to Chicago, New York to Vegas. Raunchy Little Musical is an evening with this bold pioneer of edgy comedy peppered with plenty of Belle Barth’s choice jokes. Poignant moments from her private life and loves emerge – as well as high and low comedy. Original songs by Grammy-nominated composer and Chicago resident, Ilya Levinson with clever lyrics by Owen Kalt, the script of Raunchy Little Musical is by Evanston playwright Joanne Koch, author of the Off-Broadway hit “Sophie, Totie & Belle.”
