Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, iconic superstars of the silver screen from the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond, find themselves in purgatory...IN THE SAME BODY! Involved in a real and manufactured feud for most of their screen careers, the actresses defend their lives to the powers that be. Comedic rapid fire exchanges and attacks drag out all the skeletons from each others closet...including: their disdain for each other, their professional jealousy, their failed marriages (each of them had four), their sexual peccadillos, their competition for the same men, their troubled childhoods, and their eldest daughters who both wrote scathing books attempting to destroy them. Exhaustively researched, this innovative one-woman musical presents fourteen songs with hilarious lyrics. Fireworks! Written by & starring Jillann Gabrielle from Paradise Playhouse in Crystal Lake, IL
