About This Show

Vivien tells the story of legendary and award-winning actress Vivien Leigh. It is 1967, and Ms. Leigh wanders onto a darkened London stage. She has been cast in the West-End premiere of Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance, and is present for her first read through.

Finding the theatre empty, Ms. Leigh takes the audience along on a journey through her triumphs and struggles; her marriage to Laurence Olivier, her love/hate relationship with Hollywood and her determination to achieve greatness on the legitimate stage.

Janis Stevens not only re-creates several of Ms. Leigh’s great film roles (Blanche DuBois, Scarlett O’Hara, Mrs. Treadwell) but many of the stage roles she played throughout her 30 year career as one of the most renowned actresses of our time.
