Joan Collins back in the West End at Leicester Square Theatre

Joan CollinsJoan Collins is returning to the West End with her acclaimed one woman show, Joan Collins: One Night With Joan, to share more stories and secrets of her celebrated life and career as one of the world’s most glamorous and intriguing personalities.

Joan Collins: One Night With Joan plays at Leicester Square Theatre for only three performances on two days, Friday 12th and Saturday 13th September.

Joan Collins: One Night With Joan is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to spend an intimate evening in the company of a true Hollywood legend. Joan Collins will take to the stage with honesty, style and grace and with the same engaging wit and frankness that turned her three memoirs, Past Imperfect, Second Act and Passion for Life, into international best-sellers.

Among the many anecdotes, she recounts the ups and downs of her career, together with screening rare and at times hilarious film footage from her life. It’s an opportunity to find out first hand about her marriages, her screen test for Cleopatra and to discover why she lost the role to Elizabeth Taylor, her first on-set encounter with the formidable Bette Davis, being broke and why and how Hollywood changed her fortune. Added highlights of the evening are outtakes and her legendary bitch-fights with Linda Evans in Dynasty. The second half of the evening is a question and answer session with the chance to ask Joan anything you’ve always wanted to know about her incredible life.

Joan Collins has appeared in over 118 feature films and TV series, including creating the role of Alexis Carrington on Dynasty, one of the most highly rated television dramas of all time. Her novels and memoirs have sold over 50 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 30 languages. She is a regular diarist for The Spectator and a contributor to The Daily Mail, The Telegraph, The Times and Harper’s Bazaar. On stage, Joan Collins has performed on Broadway, the West End, and in national tours in the UK and North America. She is recognised world-wide as a fashion champion of timeless beauty, and is a brand ambassador and spokeswoman for top cosmetic, health and beauty companies.

On the humanitarian front, Joan Collins is devoted to the well-being of women, children and families and regularly lends her support and celebrity to causes that include finding a cure breast cancer and empowering children with learning disabilities. She is married to Theatrical Manager Percy Gibson, and they live between their homes in Los Angeles, London, New York and the South of France. She’s guest performed in TV shows from Space 1999 to Will and Grace. In 1997 she received an OBE for her lifetime contribution to the arts and her continuing charity work.
