Bette & Joan By Anton Burge says
Once grande dames of Hollywood, by 1962 arch-rivals Bette Davis and Joan Crawford were in danger of becoming has-beens. Then an opportunity came along; to appear together in a new movie called Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
Bette & Joan depicts the two stars, in adjacent dressing rooms, between takes on the set of Baby Jane. Joan manages her anxiety by lacing her Pepsi with vodka and signing photographs for her beloved fans, while Bette chain smokes and muses on her ability to pick a decent script, but never a decent man.
Behind the bitching and the practical jokes we see each woman's insecurities and regrets, and their rivalry is revealed to be underpinned by grudging respect as they attempt to identify their new roles in life as well as in their careers.
Topher Payne and Process Theatre Artistic Director DeWayne Morgan take on the legendary screen divas, under the direction of Suehyla El-Attar.
Running April 22 thru May 14, 2016
