Event Description

Jazz singing legend turned play producer Barbara Morrison presents Glamour Girls, a new play by former Bond girl and Playboy Bunny Gloria Hendry. Directed by Hendry and written by Hendry and Michael Cormier, Glamour Girls plays at the Barbara Morrison Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles every Friday and Saturday, 8:00pm from October 28-November 19, 2011. Preview night is Thursday, October 27, 8:00pm. The theatre is one of the first playhouses in Leimert Park’s burgeoning theatre district. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Call (323)296-2272 for reservations.

 

Hendry is perhaps best known as Rosie Carver, opposite Roger Moore in Live and Let Die, and becoming the first Native and African American woman to become romantically involved with 007. She worked at the New York Playboy club from 1965-1972.

 

Glamour Girls, based partially on Hendry’s experience as one of the first Native and African American women to enter the New York Playboy Club empire, is a poignant, yet humorous look at the high price women pay for being women. When Gwen Brown sees her future, it ain’t pretty. It’s 1967 and Gwen escapes her desperate life by trading on her ability to dance. She lands a job at the prestigious Club Scarlett and becomes one of the famous Vixens. Gwen is a beautiful, talented woman in New York City and is soon swept up by the money and glamour. Bad choices lead her into an abyss, until she realizes her future lies outside the high life.

Barbara Morrison is the Artistic Director of the Barbara Morrison Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles. This jazz/blues/gospel singer guest starred with legends Count Basie Orchestra, Clayton-Hamilton Orchestra, Doc Severinsen's Big Band, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Charles, James Moody, Ron Carter and with Philharmonic Orchestras throughout Europe, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand among many other countries.

The cast includes (in alphabetical order) Bobak Bakhtiari, Mandela Bellamy, Bonita Brisker, Larney Johnson, III, Siri Dyal, Julio Hanson, Darlene Ann Harris, Anna Karakhanova, Delka Nenkova and Perry “Winkle” Williams.
