Joan Collins - One Night with Joan - Leicester Sq Theatre
Joan Collins stars in her one woman show One Night with Joan, in the Main House at Leicester Square Theatre, for 6 performances 12 to 14 & 26 to 28 April 2013.
79 year old Joan Collins shares stories and secrets of her celebrated life and career. Among the many confidences, she tells of the ups and downs of her career and screens rare and often hilarious film footage from her life. It's a chance to hear first hand about her screen test for Cleopatra and why she lost the role to Elizabeth Taylor, her on-set encounters with the formidable Bette Davis and many others including Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Paul Newman and Richard Burton; and, of course, her relationships! Another highlight of the evening are outtakes and her legendary bitch-fights with Linda Evans in Dynasty. The evening includes a question and answer session with the chance to ask Joan anything you've always wanted to know about her amazing life.
It is directed by Percy Gibson, designed by Oliver Sones, and produced by Martin Witts for London International Arts Theatre Ltd (LIAT).
