You Saw It In Charleston First: Leslie Jordan Opening Off Broadway

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Tue, Feb 24, 2009 at 11:04 AM

Leslie Jordan's hilarious one man show that stopped in Charleston last summer is heading to an off-Broadway theater for a six-week run! We talked with Jordan before his Charleston visit about the show and the book it is based on, My Trip Down the Pink Carpet.

Some of Jordan's funniest stories come from his experiences as an effeminate boy growing up in Chattanooga, Tenn.

"My dad was a lieutenant colonel in the Army, and I wasn't exactly the son he envisioned," Jordan says. "He'd come home and I'd be in the front yard twirling a baton. I'd tell him that mom wouldn't let me twirl it inside and he'd say, 'Son, I'll pay for whatever you break.'"
