The Wisdom of Eve: September 19-29, 2019

Real life is just something that has to be suffered until the curtain goes up.
— Lloyd Roberts

Adapted from the story by Mary Orr, on which the film All About Eve and the hit musical APPLAUSE were based. An engrossing and revealing "inside" story of life in New York's theatre world, told in terms of an unscrupulous ingenue's rise to Broadway stardom.
