About this show

In the 1980s, Joan Collins and Linda Evans sent television ratings soaring as Dynasty's glamorous rivals - Aexis and Krystal Carrington. Now they are reunited for a new version of the brilliant comedy Legends! Written by Tony Award-winning author James Kirkwood (A Chorus Line), Legends! centers on two fading and somewhat desperate movie stars, Sylvia (Joan Collins) and Leatrice (Linda Evans). Both actresses are courted by an unscrupulous young producer to star together in a new Broadway show, despite the fact that they have hated each other for decades. He convinces both ladies to go along by misleading them into believing they will be starring alongside Paul Newman. This hilarious set-up provides the background for the full-blown comic confrontation between these two divas and the surprising and hilarious resolution, played to the hilt by the two stars that the world knows as "rivals to the death" from the internationally acclaimed television series Dynasty.
