Season's final "Distinguished Artist" program May 6

A one-woman show featuring motivational speaker and actress Dorothy Leeds will be the final performance in the 2011-12 “Distinguished Artists” concerts series.

In "Good Lessons from Bad Women," Leeds wrestles with the concept of goodness and dives deep into a world where good is bad and bad is good.

“Instructed from childhood by her mother to be a ‘good girl’ like the ever-virtuous Eleanor Roosevelt, Dorothy wonders what might be on the other side of goodness," said Councilwoman Beth Faughnan.

Along the way, she encounteres a series of women including original sinner Eve and the naughty Mae West, Faughnan said. "In seven vignettes, and frequent conflicts with Eleanor Roosevelt, Ms. Leeds learns from these fascinating women by becoming each one and imparting the subtle lessons they teach."

The performance is Sunday, May 6, at the , at 40 Harbor Lane, Massapequa Park, beginning at 2 p.m.

The “” concert series is sponsored by the Cultural and Performing Arts (CAPA) Division of the Town of Oyster Bay’s Department of Community & Youth Services. Anyone interested in obtaining a schedule of free concerts should call 797-7900.
