An actress stands at the top of the 50 foot ‘H’, looking down on a city of broken dreams. She has only ever wanted one thing: to be a star. A play with music about the quest for fame, inspired by the secrets and forgotten histories of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Fresh from a hit season at Hollywood Fringe, The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign includes songs performed by Hollywood’s greatest movie stars – Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow and more…

Written & Performed by Joanne Hartstone, Directed by Vince Fusco and Production Management by Lucy Mitchell.

“A masterful performance… the best piece of theatre this Fringe ★★★★★

“[Hartstone’s] performance is outstanding” ★★★★½ Adelaide Theatre Guide

“A one of a kind show… Hartstone’s contralto vocals make you think of a young Judy Garland”Broadway World

“A play about the typical quest for fame countless people have over the decades. Some may have heard whispers of past movie scandals, which this show deliciously serves up… Filled with a smattering of gossip of fallen idols and dubious industry practices, it’s hardly a rosy picture of L.A.’s most famous allure. But within them hide morality tales of wanting something so desperately that it ultimately can destroy you” ★★★★ Glam Adelaide
