For one spectacular evening we raise the velvet curtains of New York’s infamous theatrical history when authors Nils Hanson and Robert Hudovernik discuss the “Ziegfeld Girls” of Broadway’s Ziegfeld Follies of the early 20th century.
Now lost to history, but forever etched in time for their contributions to the American Beauty culture, Ziegfeld Girls became iconic symbols of the modern American woman, envied for their liberated thinking, exotic beauty, daring fashions and adventurous lifestyles. Ziegfeld stars such as Lillian Lorraine, Ann Pennington, Marion Davies, Billie Burke, Marilyn Miller, Mae Murray, Ruth Etting, Gilda Gray and Helen Morgan rose to fame through the Ziegfeld Follies. Join LW! for this rare, inside look at life as one of Ziegfeld’s Girls.
