NYC PREMIERE! Jane Johnson for the Home Shopper is an original musical comedy that takes place over the span of one hour of Jane and her partner Pam Heller selling their accessories on the Stay at Home Shopper network, a channel not unlike QVC. The show features original songs, calls from viewers at home, sweetly aggressive marketing techniques. The message is the same as Jane’s call to her fans: “Little Turtle, it’s time to come out of that shell!”
Jane (Shane O’Neill) and Pam (Jill Pangallo) of Mishepaqueniquamowoc, Wisconsin have been friends since childhood, but when Jane’s husband dies of a heart attack the same week that Pam’s husband leaves her for another woman, they need to depend on each other like never before. They end up making extra cash by crafting the small accessories line, “Jane’s Illusions." What began as a table set up outside of their church selling Jane’s whimsical banana clips, has become a multi-million dollar empire with a loyal fan base of “Clipperchicks,” Jane’s nickname for the largely-Midwestern women who love her fun and festive aesthetic.
