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.
