BWW Review: BETTE DAVIS AIN'T FOR SISSIES at 3Below Theaters & Lounge is an up close and personal conversation with Bette Davis.
Bette Davis AIN'T FOR SISSIES, written by and starring Jessica Sherr, is a
90-minute one-woman show about the 1930s 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. When
Bette Davis hears that Vivian Leigh will be declared the winner...she
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 never 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.
Jessica Sherr promises to tease and unease
