Quotes & Highlights

Recent Chicago Press:

“Audiences will find themselves mesmerized by this animated, energetic performer. Resembling Bette Davis during her younger years, Ms. Sherr easily becomes the feisty, uncompromising movie star as she spills the beans on the inner workings of Hollywood during the Golden Years”—Chicago Theatre Review

“Bette Davis is Bad-Ass”—The Fourth Walsh

“There are moments in Sherr’s performance where the verisimilitude is stunning, where her invocation of Davis’s most private, most internal moments of righteous ferocity, of crippling self-doubt, and of heartbreak are breathtaking. Then, in a wink, she whips the narrative into a joke and punctuates that moment with laughter”—Local Tourist

“You will laugh, you will feel her pride, soar on her triumphs, and your heart will follow as Bette’s does, through her failures, as her attempts to rise above to do what she truly loves and as she pursues her passion in Hollywood. A woman unlike many others, but a woman’s heart you can connect to, you will fall in love . with Jessica Sherr and Bette Davis (again)”—BuzzNews

“Jessica Sherr is a one-woman revolution”—Windy City Times
