In 1981, Ann Talman was cast as Elizabeth Taylor's daughter in "The Little Foxes" on Broadway. The show traveled the world for eighteen months and their loving friendship lasted for the rest of Miss Taylor’s life. Talman celebrates Elizabeth Taylor's heavenly birthday with hilarious and touching stories about their special bond, woven with Broadway and Great American Songbook gems. This Bistro and MAC award-winning show is directed by Lina Koutrakos and features musical director Alex Rybeck on piano.

“I had the great pleasure of seeing Annie’s beautiful, poignant, and funny show. She nailed the gleaming and mercurial light that was… my stepmother! I laughed and cried in equal measures.” ~ Kate Burton
