The funny, irreverent, true story of Ninette Griffith, who was Fashion Coordinator for Loveman's Department Store in Birmingham, Alabama in the 1950s and 1960s. Ninette was also a sassy, ambitious, independent woman, born in 1913, who lived -- and savored -- a life full of celebrity hi-jinks, career disasters, and reckless romance.
At age 95, Ninette was ready to tell all. This is her story.
"There was a man sitting behind me at Dolores' story concert. He was fussing because his wife forced him to come along, and he didn't want to be there. At intermission, he told me that he had never experienced anything like it. HE LOVED IT. Of course, I don't remember him telling that to his wife." --Bettye Boyd, audience member
"Heartwarming tales of wit and intelligence..." --Mary Colurso, Birmingham News
"Dolores becomes the characters and pulls you into the action until you find yourself a part of the story." -- MagicCityMoments.com
Dolores Hydock storyteller and actress
"A stellar performer! ... Dolores' stories are smart but not cynical, heartwarming yet never corny, traditional without being mundane...a neat feat!"
--Mary Colurso, The Birmingham News
"Hydock talks with her hands. And her elbows. And her shoulders. When she speaks, she's literally irrepressible."
