Loretta Swit fought to be respected on-camera by male characters during 11-seasons of “M*A*S*H”, while off camera she has been a fervent advocate for animal rights. Both parts of her are on display this week as the 79-year-old actress is in Palm Springs for a stage show and book signing.
Swit, who played Maj. Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan on the popular TV series during its entire run of 1972-83, is appearing in Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks, a Coyote StageWorks production in the Annenberg Theater at Palm Springs Art Museum. The show runs through Feb. 12. She plans to sign copies of her latest book, SwitHeart: The Watercolour Artistry & Animal Activism of Loretta Swit, at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 12 at Just Fabulous in Palm Springs.
