“Bette Davis” on tap at ACANSA Arts Festival of the South tonight

Bette Davis Ain't for Sissies

ACANSA Arts Festival of the South continues through this weekend. Among the offerings tonight is Jessica Sherr’s Bette Davis Ain’t for Sissies

Written by and starring Jessica Sherr, Bette Davis Ain’t for Sissies is an up close and personal “conversation” with the two-time Oscar-winning and ten-time Oscar-nominated actress, Bette Davis. This 90-minute one-woman show escorts audiences to the 1939 Academy Awards. Miss Davis, nominated for Best Actress in the film “Dark Victory,” is pitted against Vivien Leigh in “Gone with the Wind.” When The Los Angeles Times leaks the Oscar winners, what will the bold, defiant and disillusioned Bette Davis do next?

The performance is tonight (September 26) at 7pm at the Argenta Community Theater.
