Ava: The Secret Conversations wiil debut and run through Apr 4 – May 7, 2023. The play follows Hollywood icon Ava Gardner (portrayed by Elizabeth McGovern, Once Upon a Time in America, Downton Abbey) to her ghost writer Peter Evans as they begin work on her tell-all biography that will shock Tinseltown. As Peter attempts to glean the juicy details about her life story, her marriages to Mickey Rooney, Artie Shaw, and Frank Sinatra, and her turbulent relationship to Howard Hughes, an altogether different and unexpected journey unfolds in this theatrical glimpse into the private life of Hollywood’s original femme fatale.

We’re very excited to reveal that Aaron Costa Ganis & Ryan W. Garcia will be able to join Elizabeth McGovern for the U.S. Premiere!
