Frankly my dear, you've never seen Vivien Leigh like this!


By Rick Foster

2007-2008 Season
Independence Studio on 3 Production History

One of the most luminous actresses of all time, Vivien Leigh, comes to life in this delightful backstage confidential. As Miss Leigh begins rehearsal for her new play, A Delicate Balance, she tries to find that balance between stardom and privacy, fantasy and reality, fact and fiction. In this intimate setting she opens up about her life with Sir Laurence Olivier, onstage and off. She regales us with stories about friends like Peter Finch, Noel Coward and Clark Gable. The fire and passion of her characters, which include Cleopatra, Ophelia, Lady Macbeth, Blanche Dubois and Scarlett O'Hara, ignite her true life story.
