Tovah Feldshuh will be doing a good turn for fellow thespian June Havoc this weekend. Theatre legend June Havoc was scheduled to reminisce about her childhood in Vaudeville in Baby June Remembers: A Love Story Aug. 22-23 at Lucille Lortel's White Barn Theatre in Westport, CT.
The show was postponed, however, when Havoc injured her leg. Filling the empty slot will be Tovah Feldshuh, performing her one-person tribute to Tallulah Bankhead, Tallulah: Southern Comfort. Feldshuh will give a single performance on Aug. 23.
Havoc will instead perform Baby June Sept. 5-6.
The White Barn season also includes George Gershwin -- A 100 Year Celebration (Aug. 29-30), featuring a cast which embodies a half a century of American Theatre history. In the production, Tony-winning director and choreographer Donald Saddler (No, No, Nanette) will direct Beatrice Arthur (Mame), Paula Lawrence, Jo Sullivan Loesser (The Most Happy Fella) and others to be announced. George Gershwin's centennial falls on Sept. 26, 1998.
