Directed by Peter Flynn, the cast features Skinner as the legendary Mae West with Joe Kinosian and Kevin Carolan.
In a previous statement director Flynn said, "Dirty Blonde is an irrepressible look at icons, idolizers and how our perception of ourselves is shaped by others. The company we've assembled brings a great balance of hilarity, sensitivity, and heart."
Shear's Dirty Blonde received Tony Award and Drama Desk Award nominations for Best Play in 2000.
