In 2004, Dixie Longate was one of the top three Tupperware sellers in the country. In 2007, her sales pitch launched into an off-Broadway stage as a theatrical show. As remarkable as Dixie's sales acumen and dramaturgical dexterity may be, the most extraordinary fact of her ascension may be that Dixie does not exist. In the spirit of Stephen Colbert's fake-news political pundit or Sacha Baron Cohen's documentarian Borat, actor Kris Andersson assumes the alter ego of Dixie—a fast-talking mom from Mobile, Alabama—in a show that the New York Times ruled "part drag, part double-entendre, but somehow never downright camp."
As the audience enters the show, each member gets a name tag and prepares for Dixie's spiel on the wonders of creative food storage solutions—or "fantastic plastic crap." During the course of the show, Dixie interacts with the audience, urging them to hold hands, sing, and compete in contests to see who can fit all of their fears into a sandwich container. Strewn amongst the crowd are Tupperware catalogues that feature the latest leftover preservation products, which guests can actually buy at the show. Proceeds for the show benefit Affirmations, a Michigan nonprofit organization that promotes inclusion for all sexual orientations and gender identities.
