Doris Eaton, Original Ziegfeld Girl, Celebrates Publication of Autobiography at Coliseum Books, Jan. 7

News   Doris Eaton, Original Ziegfeld Girl, Celebrates Publication of Autobiography at Coliseum Books, Jan. 7 Doris Eaton, one of the last living original Ziegfeld girls and a member of the storied Eaton performing family, will appear at Manhattan's Coliseum Books on Jan. 7 to celebrate the publication of her new autobiography, "The Days We Danced."

Eaton is 99 years old. When she joined the Ziegfeld Follies of 1918 at the New Amsterdam Theatre, she was only 14. Doris was one of the then famous Eaton siblings—five in number and all stage performers. (The others were Charles, Mary, Pearl and Joseph.) Doris began performing at age four. Following the Follies of 1918, she appeared in the next two Follies. For the past six years, she has returned to the New Amsterdam stage for the annual Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS benefits. Sister Mary performed in the Follies of 1921 and 1922. Pearl did not grace any Ziegfeld production, but did appear in the 1925 edition of the rival Earl Carroll's Vanities.

The Coliseum event will take place at 6 PM. The book store is located at 11 West 42nd St.
