SHARON TATE IN HEAVEN with Jen Danby Returning to Los Angeles

SHARON TATE IN HEAVEN with Jen Danby Returning to Los AngelesThis American Blonde Actress and Mississippi Mud Productions announce the return of SHARON TATE IN HEAVEN to Los Angeles January 24-25 for two shows only at the famed Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute's Marilyn Monroe Theatre. It is a "birthday" tour of Sharon Tate in Heaven in LA, coinciding with Sharon Tate's birthday (b. January 24, 1943). It includes new material inspired by the last LA tour. Written and performed by This American Blonde Actress, 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), and developed by research into videos, virtual explorations, books, pictures, interviews, films, and trekking through LA, it's a celebration of love and a Valentine. SHARON TATE IN HEAVEN is a playful and tender one-woman odyssey set as an imagined TV interview in Heaven.

"Million Dollar Baby" Sharon Tate had a career that rocketed her from television to starring roles in six films within six years, including playing the aspiring actress Jennifer North in VALLEY OF THE DOLLS (1967), which earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Most Promising Female Newcomer. Her last film, the comedy romp 12 +1 CHAIRS, was shot in Italy with Orson Welles. Comparisons between Sharon and Carole Lombard that Sharon herself felt an affinity with were part of the magic of this new hot 20 something sensation. Fast ascending into international stardom as an actress, model, and style icon, she was also a blissfully happy wife and mother-to-be living her American Dream with the love of her life, director Roman Polanski, when she was killed along with four others at her and Roman's home on Cielo Drive in Benedict Canyon on August 9, 1969, while he was in London writing a labor of love script for her and Jack Nicholson. Roman and Sharon had been dubbed the "Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford" of the Mod Hip generation, and Polanski described his years with Sharon as "the only time of true happiness in my life." SHARON TATE IN HEAVEN is an imaginary space for Sharon to talk for this TV interview. Featured in THE NEW YORK TIMES alongside TV's MAD MEN and the heralded book SHARON TATE: RECOLLECTION by Debra Tate, this play is part of the evidence of Sharon's enduring appeal as an actress, model, style icon, and her trending allure with teens who make up a "new generation crushing on Sharon Tate." SHARON TATE IN HEAVEN takes you on a buoyant ride as it celebrates the beauty of this actress and it is a Love Story.
