CECIL BEATON'S DIARIES

Direct from Brits Off Broadway 2023

For the first time, the diaries of photographer and designer Sir Cecil Beaton come to the stage, to accompany his most iconic images. Beaton’s photographs showed his versatility; his diaries exposed the cost. Even his triumphant designs for My Fair Lady never stopped his doubts. And his passion for Greta Garbo found fulfilment only in his writing. Blisteringly funny, with appearances ranging from the Queen Mother and Elizabeth Taylor to Churchill and Capote, the diaries paint a self-portrait of the 20th century’s most compelling dandy.

Performed by Richard Stirling, whose recent credits include Bridgerton and The Man who Fell to Earth.
