For Ages: 50 years and up

Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, iconic superstars of the silver screen from the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond, find themselves in Purgatory…IN THE SAME BODY! They were involved in a real and manufactured feud for most of their screen careers which culminated in their making one film together, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? The actresses defend their lives to the powers that be. Comedic rapid fire exchanges and attacks drag out all the skeletons from each other’s closet…including: their disdain for each other, their professional jealousy, their failed marriages (each of them had four), their sexual peccadillos, their competition for the same men, their troubled childhoods and their eldest daughters who both wrote scathing books attempting to destroy them. Exhaustively researched, this innovative one-woman musical presents fourteen songs with hilarious, brilliant lyrics. Fireworks!
