Shoulder pads at the ready! Dynasty's Joan Collins is returning to London's West End with her one-woman show One Night With Joan. Directed by her husband Percy Gibson and designed by Oliver Sones, Collins will appear at the Leicester Square Theatre for a limited nine-performance engagement from February 2 through February 9, 2014.
One Night With Joan follows the ups and downs of the TV legend's life and career. Collins will screen rare and hilarious film footage and speak first hand about her screen test for Cleopatra and why she lost the role to Elizabeth Taylor, her on-set encounters with Bette Davis, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Paul Newman and Richard Burton, and, of course, her many relationships. Audiences can also expect to see outtakes of her legendary catfights with Linda Evans in Dynasty. The evening includes a question and answer session with the chance to ask Joan anything about her headline-making life.
Collins starred on Broadway in 1992's revival of Private Lives. She has also performed on stage in the West End and in national tours in the U.K. and North America. She has appeared in more than 118 feature films and TV series, including creating the role of Alexis Carrington on Dynasty, one of the most highly rated television dramas of all time. Her novels and memoirs have sold over 50 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 30 languages.
