Fresh off the heels of a successful tour in Scotland, London, Boston, Virginia, and New York -- Jessica Sherr's internationally acclaimed 5-star solo show, BETTE DAVIS AIN'T FOR SISSIES returns to the stage.
Jessica Sherr is fearless, in her portrayal of a lesser-known Davis -- a vulnerable ingenue imprisoned by her own ambition. Alienated from the very system that made her a star, Bette takes us through the career and artistic controls she endured from studio executives, the private worlds of her lovers and her own unflinching pride. With humor and unabashed frankness, BETTE DAVIS AIN'T FOR SISSIES offers audiences a humanizing look into the mind of an icon whose voice could not be quelled.
