Joan Collins to return to the West End

Latest posts by Scott McMullon (see all)

The Bitch is Back and ready to hit the Big Smoke this September for a limited three performance engagement in London’s own Leicester Square Theatre.

Joan Colloins will be returning with her critically acclaimed one woman show Joan Collins: One Evening with Joan, which she had previously performed at the same theatre for a nine performance run in February this year. The show is a not to be missed opportunity to spend an intimate evening in the company of a true Hollywood legend.  Collins is set to once again take to the stage with honesty, style and grace and with the same engaging wit and frankness that turned her three memoirs, Past Imperfect, Second Act and Passion for Life, into international best-selling books.

Among the many confidences, Collins will be talking about the ups and downs of her career while screening rare and at times hilarious film footage from her life. It’s a chance to hear first hand about her marriages, her screen test for Cleopatra and to discover why she lost the role to Elizabeth Taylor. The audience will also get to hear about her first on-set encounter with the formidable Bette Davis, being broke and why and how Hollywood changed her fortune. Another highlight of the evening are outtakes and her legendary bitch-fights with Linda Evans in Dynasty where she played the duplicitous Alexis Carrington, which is still arguably her most famous role to date. The second half also treats the audience to a rare question and answer session with the chance to ask Joan anything you’ve always wanted to know about her amazing life, in the intimate surroundings of the Leicester Square Theatre.

If you are a fan and long for a more intimate connection with a living legend like Joan, then don’t let this show pass you by.
