Approval Junkie

Hertz Stage
Recommended for audiences 18 and up.
World Premiere

By and starring Faith Salie

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 – an “approval junkie,” if you will.  A comedian and Emmy Award-winning journalist best known for her roles on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! and CBS News Sunday Morning, Salie has returned  home to Georgia to adapt her memoir into a heartfelt (and disturbingly hilarious) one-woman show at the Alliance.  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.
