Ruth Draper was a pioneering actress in the early 20th century, taking the stage with only a chair, table and shawl as her props and transforming into myriad characters during her monologues. Now Academy Award-nominated actress Annette Bening is stepping into Draper's shoes and performing some of her most famous monologues, including The Italian Lesson, Doctors and Diets and A Debutante at a Dance. Bening is known for her roles in American Beauty, The Kids Are All Right, Mars Attacks and Running with Scissors. Now you can watch her play a harried society woman, debutante and etiquette instructor all in one night of Ruth Draper's Monologues. Learn More

If you haven't seen the first incarnation of this particular piece, this one is actually great, and we recommend this one. He's a truly great pianist and stage presence. On the other hand, having seen and loved ALL of Mr. Feldman's many recent shows (and productions) in SoCal - including the earlier one on Lincoln's death, I have to emphatically say that most of the changes to this one just sucked out all of the emotion for me. When I saw the "old" version I was actually shocked to find myself crying freely at the end, whereas this one was merely informative and pleasant. I am not surprised he removed the large orchestra - and that wasn't the problem for me. But removing the first-person narrator eviscerated it, in my opinion.
