The Must-See Event of the Decade!
This is seriously going to be the hottest show in the history of hot shows. Joan Collins and Linda Evans will reunite to star in Legends! which will begin their National tour on September 12, 2006 in Toronto. They will play 14 dates before landing on Broadway or London. According to a press release, Legends! "centers on two somewhat desperate and waning movie stars named Sylvia (Collins) and Leatrice (Evans). Both actresses are courted by an unscrupulous young producer to star together in a Broadway show, despite the fact that they have hated each other for decades. He convinces both ladies to go along by misleading them into believing that they will be starring in the show with Paul Newman. This hilarious set-up provides the background for the full-blown comic confrontation between these two divas and the surprising and hilarious resolution."
The show will play the following dates:
Sept. 12-Oct. 22 in Toronto at the Royal Alexandra Theatre
Oct. 24-Nov. 5 in Philadelphia at The Forrest Theatre
Nov. 7-12 in Hartford at the Bushnell
Nov. 14-19 in East Lansing at the Wharton Center
Nov. 21-Dec. 3 in Washington, D.C. at the National Theatre
Dec. 5-10 in Kansas City at the Lyric Theatre
Jan. 9-14, 2007 in San Diego at the Civic Center
Jan. 16-28 in Los Angeles at the Wadsworth
Feb. 20-March 4 in Chicago at The LaSalle

May 1-6 in Raleigh at the BTI Center
May 8-13 in New Haven at the Shubert Theatre
I seriously am into this. It's either going to be amazing or a serious shipwreck. I can totally picture Joan Collins completely messing up her lines and flipping out! However, I expect the glamour factor to be in full force.
