Best known as a regular on NPR's news-based panel show "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" and as a contributor to "CBS Sunday Morning", comedian Faith Salie released "Approval Junkie: Adventures in Caring Too Much" in 2017. The Emmy-winning media personality returns to her home city to present a brand new one-woman memoir based on the daring compilation of essays, bringing her laugh-out-loud, often tender recollections of the turbulent emotional waters of adolescence and adulthood to the stage for a strictly limited run.
From winning her (very Southern) high school beauty pageant, to picking the perfect outfit to wear to her divorce, Faith Salie is the ultimate approval seeker. Through her witty, candid, and sometimes heartbreaking recollections, Salie reflects on a lifetime of looking for validation in all the wrong places – and reveals how she finally won gold stars from her toughest critic…herself.
