The Public Theatre is pleased to present the return of Susan Poulin in her latest and funniest new show, Makin’ Whoopie – Ida LeClair’s Guide to Love & Marriage! playing Nov 9. 10 and 11th.

Is your “happily ever after” in need of a little fine tuning? It’s Ida to the rescue! The funniest woman in Maine returns with a show plumb-chucka-full of hilarious stories and down home advice on how to keep your marriage sweet, simple and easy. Well, she is a Certified Maine Life Guide, after all.

In Makin’ Whoopie!, Ida tackles the big questions like, “What do a whoopie pie and marriage have in common?” “How do I get my sexy back?” and “You want me to do what with your ashes?” Get the inside scoop on senior tattoos, staycation do’s and don’ts, and the latest adventures of the Woman Who Runs with the Moose. As Ida says, “Charlie and me have been married for over forty years. That don’t make me an expert. But it certainly gives me a lot to talk about!”

Inspired from her book, The Sweet Life, Ida LeClair, Maine’s funniest woman, offers a fresh view on love, marriage, and dating with a delightful mix of sassy stories and common-sense advice. As always, Ida strikes the perfect balance between humorous and heartfelt, whip-smart yet down to earth. Spending time with Ida is like talking to an old friend – one with plenty of experience and a wicked good sense of humor!

Selected by Portland Magazine as one of the "Ten Most Intriguing People in Maine,” award winning writer and performer Susan Poulin is the author of eleven plays, six of which star her alter ego, Ida LeClair. A regular collaborator with her husband Gordon Carlisle, their critically acclaimed plays, In My Head I'm Thin, Shutting Up Peggy Lee, Spousal Deafness…and Other Bones of Contention, Pardon My French!, Ida: Woman Who Runs With The Moose!, Ida’s Havin’ a Yard Sale!, A Very Ida Christmas!, I Married an Alien! and The Moose in Me, the Moose in You have broken box office records throughout the Northeast.
