Hi-Hat Hattie, the musical about Wichitan Hattie McDaniel portrayed by Laurence Olivier Award, Drama Desk Award winning and Tony Award nominated Karla Burns!

The majority of the show takes place in Wichita, and Raanan is excited to bring this show back to where it all started. Hershberg was a finalist last year in StandUp NBC and The Laughing Skull Festival in Atlanta, GA. He regularly opens for Kathleen Madigan in sold out theaters across the country.
