Barbara Bradshaw & Carol Clarke

Dramatic Performance

“Words... Alive!” has been entertaining audiences for over 18 years. Originally founded by the late actress Eunice Bernard and our wonderful scriptwriter/actress Carol Clarke, “Words... Alive!” has performed for over 200 organizations, entertaining enthusiastic audiences all the way from Jupiter to Miami Beach. Each program is performed by three professional actresses chosen from a troupe of seven awardwinning performers. Last year, they presented “Natural Woman,” a program about the lives of Carol King, Carly Simon and Joni Mitchell, and it was a resounding success. This year, they are happy to present “The Nightingale,” a dramatic reading taken from the famous book by Kristin Hannah.

Joan Rivers: Behind the Mask of Comedy

Joan Rivers was a comedian, actress, writer, producer, jewelry monger, spokesperson, hand model and Celebrity Apprentice winner among other feats. Until the day she died, she carried the mantle of the hardest working woman in show business. Why was her ambition so relentless? Where did the drive and energy come from? From her own words and those of her mother and daughter, the Readers Theatre group “Words... Alive!” will dramatize the back story of a remarkable woman who desired to be a star but never felt comfortable with her success.

“The Book of Joan” by Melissa Rivers and Joan’s autobiography “Enter Talking” and Joan’s tell-all book, “Still Talking,” provide the grist for this rags-to-riches portrayal of an American icon. Love her or leave her, you will never forget Joan Rivers’ story.
