Summer Hummer: Foreplay

August 17, 2015



Sometimes You Just Have to Take it Off!
(and sing at the same time)

The Summer Hummer has become the Washington area’s hottest, sweatiest, most provocative summer tradition. A racy benefit to support actors in time of need, the top talent from the DC Theater Community unites for an evening of bawdy show tunes, saucy surprises and baring it all. Directed by Signature’s Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer, this evening is sure to be sweaty, sultry and a whole lot of fun!

Directed by Signature’s Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer and Matthew Gardiner.
