Erma Bombeck, the revered suburban American housewife, syndicated columnist, and one of the greatest humorists of our times, will come to life as renowned living history presenter, Storysmith® Susan Marie Frontczak portrays her on the Performing Arts Center stage. As a teen, Frontczak says she competed with her mother to see which of them could snag the monthly Good Housekeeping magazine first in order to read Erma Bombeck’s column. “Through her writing, Erma mocks expectations for housewife perfection,” Frontczak says. “She put into print what many think, but feel we aren’t supposed to admit we’re thinking. By divulging her struggles, self-doubt and maddening frustrations, she dispels the taboo.” Frontczak, a professional storyteller from Boulder, Colorado, has given more than 700 presentations across the country as Marie Curie, Mary Shelley, Eleanor Roosevelt, and more and is a true crowd-favorite here in Tarpon Springs.
