The tenth annual AFTGC/CAN benefit will be an event not to be missed! Jacqueline Susann’s “Valley of the Dolls” began as a best-selling novel in 1966, before becoming a blockbuster motion picture the following year. Now, it’s a theatrical event! The stage adaptation of the hit film has been performed only a handful of times, so this will be a rare chance to see this cult classic brought to life on the stage. “Valley of the Dolls” tells the story of three young women, Anne Welles, Neely O’Hara and Jennifer North, as they set out with dreams that will bring them to the dizzying heights of fame – and eventual self-destruction! Anne moves to New York City in search of independence and a life of her own, while Neely dreams of being a Broadway star, and Jennifer longs for love and domestic happiness. As their stories unfold, each finds love, fame and happiness – but ultimately loses it all, as booze, treachery and pills known as “dolls” take their toll! Also prominent in the tale is Helen Lawson – the toast of Broadway who has survived her share of ups and downs, and lived to sing about it. The stage show, like the film, features songs by Andre and Dory Previn, including “I’ll Plant My Own Tree” and “It’s Impossible.”
