“I couldn't be more excited and proud to show Shrill to my hometown. It's the show that I needed when I was younger, and I hope it resonates with people who aren't used to seeing themselves on screen. I actually wrote some of my memoir, Shrill--the book upon which the show is based--at the Cloud Room, so there just couldn't be a better venue. Can't wait to party!” –Lindy West
