Susan Claassen As Edith Head

By Charlotte Robinson, May 21, 2017
Susan Claassen will perform her fabulous one-woman show “A Conversation With Edith Head” on Saturday June 10th at 7:30P & Sunday June 11th at 2:30P presented by MAMM Alliance to support the performing arts students at California State University Fullerton, CA. Claassen stated, “We are thrilled to help raise funds for Cal State Fullerton & empower the artists of tomorrow with these benefit performances! The MAMM Alliance is a support group for the performing arts at Cal State Fullerton. The Alliance is named in honor of arts patron & philanthropist, Marcy Arroues Mulville.” 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. This will be Ms. Claassen's first appearance in the greater Los Angeles area in five years. 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. I talked to Claassen about “A Conversation With Edith Head” in this exclusive audio byte:
