Tallulah Who?

Music & Lyrics: Suzi Quatro and Shirlie Roden. Book by Willie Rushton.

Queens Theatre, Hornchurch 1991.


The Life and Times of outrageous American actress Tallulah Bankhead, as seen through the eyes of a BBC TV crew: tv producer Nicholas Bottom is in LA, looking for a "star" to interview. Joan Crawford and Jane Russell are both out of town, but Tallulah Bankhead is available. Who is she? In desperation, Bottom decides to give her a go and discovers that the little lady from Alabama, who scandalised society in the Twenties with her cartwheels in cami-knickers and cocaine habit, is larger than life.
