"In the parking lot of The Hummingbird, a once-glamorous motel on New Orleans’ infamous Airline Highway, a group of friends gather," according to press notes. "A rag-tag collection of strippers, hustlers and philosophers have come together to celebrate the life of Miss Ruby, an iconic burlesque performer who has requested a funeral before she dies. The party rages through the night as old friends resurface to pay their respects."

The production team for Steppenwolf’s production includes Scott Pask (scenic design), David Zinn (costume design), Japhy Weideman (lighting design), Fitz Patton (sound design and original composition), Erica Daniels (casting), Malcolm Ewen (stage manager) and Christine D. Freeburg (assistant stage manager).
