About This Event

Bette Davis Ain't For Sissies

Bette Davis Ain't For Sissies is an up close and personal conversation with the two-time Oscar winning and ten-time Oscar nominated actress, Bette Davis. Written by and starring Jessica Sherr, it's a 90-minute one-woman show about the 1930's icon, Bette Davis, on the night of the 1939 Academy Awards. Miss Davis is nominated for Best Actress in Dark Victory, and the Los Angeles Times leaked the Oscar winners early … so the bold, defiant and disillusioned star decides to leave the Oscars! Embodying the screen heroine is actress and playwright, Jessica Sherr, the image of a young Bette, who brings us into the 60-year history of "The First Lady of the American Screen." Back in her Hollywood home, Jessica Sherr powerfully channels Ms. Davis, fuming and frustrated, as she takes us on a bumpy ride that portrays a tumultuous entry onto the silver screen. In these private moments we get a look at the vulnerable and injured side of the great star, imprisoned by her own ambition, who may often be knocked down, but will not stay down and complain like a sissy. Witness Bette's most defining moments as a tenacious starlet fighting her way to the top! See what happens when someone who always wins … loses.
