"A Very Joan Crawford Christmas" at the Unicorn

Ron Megee is Joan Crawford in "A Very Joan Crawford Christmas" by Jeff Church & Ron Megee. Through January 2, 2011.

Watch any old movie from the 1930s or '40s and you're likely to hear Kansas City worked into the script. One reason may be that it was a stop for planes and trains traveling between the coasts. But another reason could be traced to the fact that many movie stars of the period were from Kansas City, including Ginger Rogers, Wallace Beery and Jean Harlow. The most famous native, though, was Joan Crawford, who is the subject of a new play with a twisted holiday theme.
