Jessica Sherr in "Bette Davis Ain't for Sissies": Description
Written and performed by Jessica Sherr, "Bette Davis Ainâ€™t for Sissies" (BDAFS) is a 90-minute one-woman show about Bette Davis and her experience at the Academy Awards. On the night of the 1939 Oscars, Bette Davis returns home knowing sheâ€™s losing Best Actress to Vivien Leighâ€™s Scarlett Oâ€™Hara because the press has leaked the winners. Jessicaâ€™s performance is a unique and thoughtful perspective of Davis in her ongoing challenge to secure the best roles for herself in the male-dominated movie studio system.
â€œBette Davis Ainâ€™t For Sissies is a magnificently witty and touching testament to a woman who refused to compromise... Jessica Sherr is a star in the making.â€
- Lorna Irvine, The List, UK.
â€œSherrâ€™s Davis isâ€¦ a nuanced performance that is enlightening, infuriating, bittersweet and sad...
Kudos to Jessica Sherr for presenting an enlightening portrait of a trailblazing feminist
who is indelibly etched upon our collective mind.â€ - Steve Murray, Broadway World Review, August 28, 2019.
