Privately, Hayworth struggled with her Hollywood identity. She was a fantasy for millions but remained a stranger to herself.

Blue Panther Productions & Canal Cafe Theatre to Present LOVE GODDESS, THE RITA HAYWORTH CABARET

Love Goddess, the Rita Hayworth Cabaret is a celebration of music, dance, and magic with the glorious Rita Hayworth, played in a tour-de-force performance by the show's creator, New York-based Almog Pail, accompanied by composer-lyricist & Broadway pianist, Logan Medland. Love Goddess (original title Me, Myself and Rita) won raves for the London premiere, Canal Café (2017), in Malta, and Off-Broadway. The Canal Café Theatre is proud to present this exclusive return engagement.

We meet 13-year old Margarita Carmen Cansino in Tijuana, where she worked as her father's dance partner. At 18, after a quick arranged marriage to a low-level producer twice her age, her career as Rita Hayworth was launched. She made 61 films over 37 years. Crowned Love Goddess, she thrilled studio executives and audiences in 1940s/50s Hollywood with her irresistible blend of sensuality on-screen and bashful demeanor in person. Privately, Hayworth struggled with her Hollywood identity. She was a fantasy for millions but remained a stranger to herself.
