The Real Mae West: Living History via Zoom
Feb 23, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Mae West was an American actress, singer, playwright, screenwriter, comedian, and sex symbol and a controversial figure during the Depression era. She shattered box office records and public sensibilities. She rocketed from Broadway to become the highest-paid actress in Hollywood. Her one-liners scandalized the censors yet made her an icon. She rescued studios from bankruptcy and created stars.
Without her, Cary Grant may have remained a nobody. Meet the woman behind the wit. Who was Mae West, really? Educational entertainer Martina Mathisen brings Mae West to life and brings insight to the woman behind the legend. Live Q&A will follow the presentation.
