Putting on the Ritz: Cocktail Party, Program & Book Signing

October 19, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$20 – $25
Barbara La Marr

Welcome all flappers, sheiks, gangsters, and molls! Join us at the swanky Shakespeare Speakeasy for hotsy-totsy jazz, swell hooch, and hobnobbing with Hollywood’s alluring screen siren, Barbara La Marr (“The girl who was too beautiful for Hollywood”) . We’ll party to the sounds of the John Reynolds Trio. Rumor has it that Miss La Marr will spill the goods on her flamboyant hijinks!

It will be the Bee’s Knees! Join us for a cocktail party, live music, plus a presentation and book signing by actor and writer Sherri Snyder for her new biography of Barbara La Marr. Her book will be available for purchase.

Put on your glad rags and join the fun; Period Dress is encouraged! Warning: Don’t forget to purchase tickets in advance. We can’t let just anyone in, you know!

Tickets: PMH & Shakespeare Club Members $20; Regular Guys & Gals $25. To purchase tickets online, click here, or call 1.800.838.3006.

Please Note: This event takes place at The Shakespeare Club, 171 S. Grand Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91105.
