She Was a Great Dad

Jeremy Productions—Onstage at Pantages

Based on a true story, this tale draws you back to the big band era and what it takes to be a hit musician. In one word, it takes a penis. What if you don’t have one?

This thoughtful bio relates what people are willing to do to succeed if they’re passionate enough about their trade. The journey depicts an era that is vastly different than the one we live in today. I’m not saying that our society is completely enlightened—it’s not be any means, but we have come a long way in the past century. It’s important to revisit our histories to understand where we came from, and Susan Jeremy takes us ably through this glimpse of the past.
