Drag queen takes Tupperware to new stage

New York (Reuters Life!) – A drag queen has taken the art of selling Tupperware to a new level by turning his story into an off-Broadway show.

Instead of demonstrating the plastic containers at coffee mornings and parties in suburban homes, Dixie Longate has transformed a love for Tupperware it into a one-woman stage show that is nothing like what housewives experienced in the 1950s.

“It’s the best plastic crap on the planet,” the fast-talking, slightly raunchy Longate said in an interview.

“It never breaks. The stuff lasts forever.”

During the show entitled “Dixie’s Tupperware Party” Longate, a 34-year-old actor named Kris Andersson who started selling Tupperware as Dixie in 2001, talks, sings and jokes about her life and offers alternatives to the traditional uses for the product.
