Hartstone-Kitney Productions presents The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign. Written & performed by Joanne Hartstone
An aspiring actress, Evie Edwards, clutches the sides of the Hollywood sign. Looking out over the lights of Los Angeles and the movie studios that produced her nightmare, she charts a path through Hollywood’s forgotten histories to decide her fate. She has only ever wanted one thing: to be a star.
Winner of the inaugural ‘Made in Adelaide’ Award (as well as many other awards), this solo-play with music has toured to Hollywood, Edinburgh, New York, the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Sydney and is now touring regional SA for the first time.
“Be magically transported into Hartstone’s faraway world of Hollywood at its ruthless fairy-story height.” Samela Harris, Barefoot Review
★★★★★ “”It’s a fascinating look at the mechanisms behind the golden era of the silver screen… and one which entertains while managing to draw even more parallels with today’s Hollywood in the wake of the #MeToo movement.” Patrick McDonald, The Advertiser
★★★★★ GLAM Adelaide
★★★★★ “Joanne Hartstone is an all-round entertainer, oozing comedic, dramatic and musical talent in this magical performance. A true Super Star is Born.” Edinburgh Guide
“The show is a hit parade of the 1940s and Hartstone sings each and every one with flair. Close your eyes and it could be Garland.” Jenny Fewster, Stage Whispers.
