“Words... Alive!” has been
entertaining audiences for
over 18 years. Originally
founded by the late actress
Eunice Bernard and our
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.
