Long before she was the "High Priestess of Soap Camp" on Dynasty, 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 as she takes an irreverent look at the highs and lows of her roller-coaster career and life in her engaging one-woman show that includes rarely seen film footage. You'll hear first-hand about her screen test for Cleopatra and why she lost the role to Elizabeth Taylor, her on-set encounters with the formidable Bette Davis and much more -- including, of course, her relationships! The evening includes a Q&A session in which you'll have the chance to ask Collins anything you've always wanted to know about her amazing life. Learn More

IT WAS BORING AND THEY ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT STUFF WITHOUT MENTIONING THE NAME OF THEIR RESTAURANTS. NOTHING VERY EXCITING TO TALK ABOUT. IN FACT DUE TO THEIR INANE DISCUSSIONS I WOULD NEVER ATTEND ANY OF THEIR RESTAURNTS. SHOULD HAVE HAD A PROFESSIONAL REVIEWER INSTEAD OF MNA
