Sharon Tate in Heaven is a one woman odyssey about model and actress Sharon Tate. Sharon started in television and made six films, including Valley of the Dolls (1967) playing the aspiring actress Jennifer North, for which she was nominated for the Golden Globe for Most Promising Female Newcomer. She starred in films in the USA and internationally, including her last film, the comedy 12 +1 Chairs in 1969, with Orson Welles. By 1969, she was ascending into international stardom. By then she was also a wife and mother-to-be living her American Dream. She met director Roman Polanski in London in 1966 when she was hired to play the lead in his film The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967), a "Disney" comedy take on vampires as she described it, fell madly in love, and married Roman, who described his years with her at a press conference in 1969 "as the the only time of true happiness in my life." On August 9, 1969, she and four others were killed at the home she and Roman lived in at 10050 Cielo Drive in Benedict Canyon, LA. In this one woman odyssey, written and performed by Jen Danby (The Blonde Bombshell Project: Marilyn Monroe, Nina in SeaGull69, an adaptation by Mississippi Mud of Chekhov's SeaGull set in LA in summer 1969, directed by Austin Pendleton), and inspired by research into books, pictures, interviews, films, virtual explorations, and more, Sharon Tate has a TV interview in Heaven to talk about her life, acting, and love, as a Valentine message to her husband. This is the story of the actress, Hollywood star, and woman Sharon Tate, born in Dallas, Texas, with an American Dream and International Appeal, and it is a Love Story.
