Love Goddess, the Rita Hayworth MusicalThe Cockpit Theatre, NW8 8EH, [Venue Details]
Presenting a new musical from New York about one of the greatest movie stars who ever lived. Considered by many to be the most beautiful woman of her day, Fred Astaire’s all-time favorite dance partner, and the bride Orson Welles wanted more than any other woman in the world.
Crowned the “Love Goddess” by her adoring fans, Rita Hayworth thrilled studio executives, servicemen, and movie audiences alike, generating big box office in 1940s/50s Hollywood.
Yet she struggled to identify with the bombshell image projected of her, marrying and divorcing five different men in her search for a partner who loved her for who she truly was. As Hayworth’s story unfolds, we meet Orson Welles, Fred Astaire, Harry Cohn and other extraordinary figures in her life, all presented through the fractured prism of her deteriorating memory due to a then unknown cause: Alzheimer’s.
