The Carpenter Center is a lovely venue, and Joan was terrific. This gal's still got it, and as expected, has led an extraordinary life. It was fun to have her share her memories with us.

More Information


Long before she was the ’ High Priestess of Soap Camp’ on Dynasty (or as she would say Die-Nasty), Joan Collins starred opposite the likes of Paul Newman, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope while fending off advances from Frank Sinatra and Richard Burton. Join her for a special evening as she takes an irreverent look at the highs and lows of her rollercoaster career and life in her one-woman show that left London audiences cheering.   From the movies to the marriages to nearly being sold to an Arab sheik on her 23rd birthday, get set for an evening of delicious dish from this iconic diva!
