Peppered with her impressions of original characters, her favorite TV & film characters & celebrities, such as Eartha Kitt, Julie Andrews & even Fran Drescher, and through her storytelling and songs, Marlene Villafane takes you through a ride of the events that led her to find her personal power and voice again while growing up gawky, and painfully shy in the Upper West Side. "Hello Everyone, this is Eartha Kitt and I want to thank all of you and this fabulous city. Rrrrrrrrrrrr"!
In Marlene Goes to Hollywood, Marlene Villafane takes us on a journey of her life growing up a gawky and shy Puerto Rican in NYC.
