New York City, NY - My Pal Bette, a one act play that was a smash hit at the 2007 Orlando International Fringe Festival, is making its NY premiere this summer at The Producer’s Club. Written by John Ryan, My Pal Bette stars Tammy Kopko as Bette Davis, the razor-mouthed, high-ball drinking, chain-smoking screen siren and unlikely mentor to pre-pubescent Tommy Klein. Tommy is an obsessive-compulsive nerd with an unhealthy attachment to his kvelling, Yente-from-hell mother until God and his army of well-chiseled angels grants him a “guardian diva” – Miss Davis in all her glory. Hilarity and pathos ensue as Bette teaches her awkward protégé about bitch-slapping your inner-demons in this warped buddy comedy about DIVAS, mothers, and self-empowerment.
