Join me at the Homestead Museum's annual Ticket to the Twenties Festival on Sunday, October 8 as I don my seamed stockings and paint on my bee-stung lips to portray silent screen vamp Barbara La Marr in a one-woman performance piece---Barbara La Marr: The Girl Who Was Too Beautiful for Hollywood---that I wrote about her incredible, oftentimes scandalous life. My performance takes place upon the museum's lawn stage and begins at 3 p.m. Following the performance, I will briefly lecture about Barbara's commendable career and contribution to cinematic history.
The entire festival is FREE to attend and features silent film, vintage jazz, dancing, performers, and more! For more information, visit the Homestead Museum's website here.
Some commentary on the show:
* "In regards to the Barbara La Marr show as performed by Sherri Snyder, I have had the privilege of seeing it on several different occasions. I was amazed and thrilled to see this very beautiful and talented young woman step back in time to recapture the tempestuous life of my mother during the silent days of Hollywood." ---Donald Michael Gallery, son of Barbara La Marr
* "I wanted to thank you again for your fabulous portrayal of Barbara La Marr today at Hollywood Forever. You captivated the tour goers. The performance was truly riveting as you unveiled the drama behind the woman. Wow! It was fantastic." ---Frank Cooper, Art Deco Society of Los Angeles
* "She does for Barbara La Marr what Val Kilmer did for Jim Morrison." --Sara Henderson
