Barbara La Marr: The Girl Who Was Too Beautiful for Hollywood: Sherri Snyder portrays legendary silent screen siren Barbara La Marr in a self-authored performance piece, detailing Barbara’s incredible—and oftentimes scandalous—life from her humble beginnings to her tragic death at age twenty-nine in 1926. Barbara’s commendable careers as a dancer, screenwriter, and actress are spotlighted in the performance, as are her banishment from Los Angeles at age seventeen for being “too beautiful”; her myriad marriages; and her hidden pregnancy and subsequent staging of her son’s adoption. Sherri follows the performance with a lecture outlining how Barbara fits within the context of the 1920s and a Q & A session.Registration Required: 480-488-2286.
