Claudia Shear’s 1994 self-penned solo performance piece Blown Sideways Through Life, enjoyed a run of 221 performances at the off-Broadway Cherry Lane Theatre and won her an Obie Award and a Drama Desk Award nomination. Shear's employment experiences as a member of the American work force - sixty-four jobs in all, including pastry chef, nude model, waitress, whorehouse receptionist, proofreader, and Italian translator - provided her with a wealth of material for her piece. In 2000 she had a hit with Dirty Blonde, her exploration of the life and career of Mae West, which earned her Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations for both Best Play and Best Actress and won her the Theatre World Award.
