FROM JUDY TO BETTE: THE STARS OF OLD HOLLYWOOD

From Judy to Bette lo-res posterIt’s the 1930s, and movies are being made faster than you can say MGM, and being made to make you feel good. Budgets are increasing and the studios are making pictures bigger and bigger. Within the industry, four women emerge who refuse to be “just another ingénue”.

Judy Garland, Betty Hutton, Lucille Ball and Bette Davis each made their own strides to make women a more prominent and powerful force in
Hollywood.

 Join Rebecca Perry for a night of marvellous melodies and scandalous headlines from the Golden Age of Hollywood!

★★★★ “Expertly weaving stories, songs and impressions, Perry once again shows off her knack for making everyone forget that they’re watching a one-woman show” – Torontoist

“[Perry] does not impersonate; she encapsulates.” “A smart, sharp portrait of four women who changed Hollywood performed by a smart, sharp performer…who sets the standard for such shows” – The Slotkin Letter
