Coronado Island off of San Diego is the place to be this afternoon. The Coronado Public Library presents A Conversation with Edith Head, starring Susan Claassen (below) in her award-winning one-woman show as the legendary Hollywood costume designer.
Here’s what to expect in an exquisite photo flyer:
Edith Head received 35 Academy Award nominations and won eight Oscars for costume design. She dressed Barbara Stanwyck, Bette Davis, Mae West, Gloria Swanson, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Kim Novak, Natalie Wood, and many other movie stars.
To compliment the event, an exhibition featuring many of Edith Head’s original costume design drawings will be on display at the Coronado Public Library. The costume sketches served as the working designs for wardrobe used in iconic motion pictures. The exhibition will remain until November 15th. It’s a unique opportunity to go back in time to experience Golden Age of Hollywood.
Today’s performance is sponsored by the Friends of the Coronado Library. The show will commence at 3:00 pm in the Winn Room, 640 Orange Ave., and it’s totally free to the public. Seating is first come-first served.
