Dorothy Dandridge's life story is the stuff of dreams ... and nightmares. Fifty years after her death, Lonely Girl shows how Dandridge rose to unprecedented heights of fame as "Hollywood's First Love Goddess of Color," and became the first African-American to receive a Best Actress Oscar nomination. But only 11 years later, Dandridge was dead, her finances exhausted, her daughter in an institution, and her legacy badly tarnished. Lonely Girl restores Dandridge to her rightful place in the pantheon of Hollywood's great stars. Billed as a "photo and film musical play memoir," Lonely Girl stars the accomplished vocalist and performer Wanda Ray Willis. Humorous, tragic, always captivating, this one-woman show draws on Dandridge's own writings (and Willis' own incredible voice) to lead you inside the "secret life" of this incomparable talent.
