Susan Claassen As Edith Head

By Charlotte Robinson, December 03, 2018
Susan Claassen will perform her fabulous one-woman show “A Conversation With Edith Head” for 2 weeks only at The Pear Theatre 1110 La Avenida St Suite A in Mountain View, California from December 7th to 16th. 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. 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 & 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. Edith Head's story is as fascinating as the history of the film industry itself, filled with humor, frustration & above all, glamour. Brilliant artist Susan Claassen brings this regional premier to the Bay Area stating “We are packing our bags, costumes, sketches & Oscars® & "Head"ing to The Pear Theatre, Mountain View, California!” I talked to Claassen about “A Conversation With Edith Head” in this exclusive audio byte: LISTEN
