For the first time, the diaries of photographer and designer Sir Cecil Beaton come to the stage to accompany his most iconic images of everyone from film stars like Marilyn Monroe to political figures like Winston Churchill. Beaton’s photographs showed his versatility while his diaries exposed his inner turmoil. Not even his triumphant designs for My Fair Lady could quiet his restless mind and his passion for Greta Garbo was as complicated as it was powerful. Blisteringly funny, with appearances ranging from the Queen Mother and Elizabeth Taylor to Audrey Hepburn and Truman Capote, the diaries paint a self-portrait of the 20th century’s most compelling dandy. Evergreen Theatrical Productions Ltd presents this show, adapted and performed by Richard Stirling, as part of 59E59's Brits Off Broadway 2023 season.
