Cat fight tonight! Joan Collins and Linda Evans reunite
Former 80s primetime soap stars Evans and Collins star as aging movie star rivals clinging to what remains of their fading glamor. The play, itself, is notoriously lousy. Carol Channing and Mary Martin starred in a mid-80s tour of the show, which was more famous for the backstage rather than on-stage drama. None of that really matters though.
No one is going to see this show for its literary aspirations or even the stars' thespian turns. Everyone is going to see Joan and Linda recapture the Dynasty glory days of hair-pulling girl fights in the lily pond.
Apparently, the ladies do not disappoint. While neither is a spring chicken, the first act does close with a bitch fest worthy of Alexis and Krystle, and Legends' costumes were designed by Dynasty tastemaker Nolan Miller. That means - shoulder pads, sequins, daring decolletage, fur wraps and hair out to there. I'm sure the writing staff of Desperate Housewives will be there taking notes when the show hits Los Angeles in January.
