Melbourne Festival might be over but there are still some great performances in Melbourne - Thursday November 30th Bette Davis On The Edge starring Christine St John Resplendent in a midnight blue gown, its 4.30am on October 31st 1962 and Bette is waiting for the reviews of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. It’s make or break for her fading career, and she knows it. Reflecting her past glories from the Talkies to the present day, her story is the entire history of the American Motion Picture industry. The show has a fascinating inception: Discovering that the great two-time Oscar winner placed an advertisement in a movie trade paper in 1962 asking for work, actress Christine St John decided to piece together the truth behind this astonishing fact. It’s not just a meticulously researched and compelling story, but is touching and truthful and Christine performs it beautifully without ever falling into caricature. Tickets £10, £7 concessions from the venue 01332 863522,Forteys in Melbourne Market Place or on line at www.ticketsource.co.uk... See MoreSee Less
