Susan Claassen Plays Edith Head

By Charlotte Robinson, August 04, 2016
Susan Claassen stars in the fabulous one-woman show “A Conversation With Edith Head” that runs Monday August 8th & Tuesday August 9th at the North Coast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach, California at 7:30P. The play is based on the book “Edith Head’s Hollywood” by Edith Head & Paddy Calistro & continues the legacy of Hollywood’s iconic costume designer. For 6 decades the legendary costume designer Edith Head worked on over 1100 films, dressed the greatest stars of Hollywood from Mae West to Grace Kelly, received 35 Academy Award nominations & won an unprecedented 8 Oscars. Claassen stated, "We are thrilled to return to North Coast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach, CA! Their artistic director, David Ellenstein & staff are amazing! The greater San Diego area is filled with fashionistas, film buffs & all around fabulous folks! Rumor has it, "Edie's" friend, the divine designer Zandra Rhodes, will be in attendance!” The play is filled with behind-the-scenes stories about great movie legends & their delicious intimate encounters with Miss Head during their costume fittings & other personal recollections. As Lucille Ball stated, “Edith knew the figure faults of every top star. And she never told. Edith always knew how to keep a secret.” However in this one-woman show some secrets just might be revealed & fashion tips freely given. We talked to Claassen about “A Conversation With Edith Head” in this exclusive audio byte:

Susan is FABULOUS...can't imagine anyone else portraying Edith Head (perhaps not even Edith herself)!
