Theater for the New City
The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign
Jan 02, 2018 through Jan 21, 2018 Limited Engagement
An aspiring actress stands on the 50 foot H, looking out at the lights of Los Angeles and the Dream Factory known as Hollywood. It is 1949: Truman is President, Marilyn Monroe is a little known model who poses nude for an art calendar in order to recover her impounded car, and nobody has ever heard of Evie Edwards...
Charting over 30 years of the Golden Age of Hollywood, including stories from the Silent Era, the Great Depression and World War II, this solo show takes audiences on a nostalgic journey – with a different perspective. The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign includes songs composed for cinema’s greatest stars - Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow and more. Joanne Hartstone is Evie Edwards - the girl who has only ever wanted one thing: to be a star.
THE GIRL WHO JUMPED OFF THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN played to audiences in Hollywood, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the Adelaide Fringe Festival. It won the inaugural Made in Adelaide Award and The Holden Street Theatres’ Award for the 2017 Adelaide Fringe. When the show travelled to Hollywood, Joanne won the Producers’ Encore Award, TVolution Platinum Medal, Combined Artist & Fringe Management “Pick of the Fringe”, Better Lemon’s Critics Choice Award, and TVolution Best Solo Show (female) Award, and was nominated for a host of other awards. The subsequent Edinburgh season had sold out shows and garnered a plethora of four and five star reviews and inspired overwhelming audience acclaim.
