My Husband Liked Beverly Better

Sept. 19 - Sorry to report that this show has been cancelled. I've heard reports that is might be rescheduled at another venue. I'll re-post with updated info when I can.

There will be a special performance of My Husband Liked Beverly Better, the engaging one-woman show written and performed by Syra Beth Puett that premiered in 2017 at Lakewood Playhouse. In the performance, Puett sits in a comfortable chair and chats with the audience in a most personal and revealing manner about her life both inside, and outside the theater. This intimate show spans more than 50 years in Syra Beth's life on and off stage in opera and dramatic and musical stage performances.

A Southerner by birth, transformed to a Pacific Northwesterner, Syra Beth has performed in Germany, Poland, South Korea, and in six states, and began her Tacoma acting career in 1979. In more recent years, she has been seen as Eleanor the Queen in The Lion in Winter at Lakewood Playhouse, as the loveable Ethel Thayer in On Golden Pond at Tacoma Little Theatre and as Miss Daisy in Driving Miss Daisy at Dukesbay Productions.

I was privileged to see her in My Husband Liked Beverly Better at Lakewood Playhouse and was totally captivated.
