She was a child actress, a pop star with a Top 40 hit, and a Studio 54 party girl. And now Sherri Lewis -- who was also known as Sherri Beachfront (and is not to be confused with puppetmeister Shari Lewis) -- is bringing her story to the stage in Life is a Beach, which opens Nov. 6 at the Institute for Contemporary Art Theatre in Boston.

Lewis's road to stardom had a downside -- she became a drug addict and is today a long-term HIV survivor -- but the show, in her own words, is not about despair but about "hope, courage, and survival." Life is a Beach, which is laced with songs from the 60s like "Where the Boys Are" and "Be My Baby," runs from Nov. 6-Dec. 6 at ICA Theatre, 955 Boylston St., Boston. For tickets, call (617) 927-6620.
