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
The theater staff was magnificent and very accommodating. It was a wonderful experience. The usher instructed me on how to reach my seat on the other side of the row. The only negative was two patrons who refused to allow me to pass them in order to reach the seat. I had to use another row occupied by half a dozen or so people instead of just two.info • Mar 04 2014 star this tip starred
