“Zimbalist creates Hepburn simply and with humanity…absolute perfection.”
Backstage

The Falcon Theatre presents the hit one-woman show TEA AT FIVE, written by Matthew Lombardo and directed by Jenny Sullivan, the second production in its 2010-2011 Subscription Season. This gracefully funny and heartwarming tale stars Stephanie Zimbalist (Remington Steele) as legendary actress Katharine Hepburn.

An uncontested icon of live theater and cinematic art, Katharine Hepburn transformed herself from the key actress of a generation into thespian royalty. TEA AT FIVE opens in 1938, when the 31-year-old Hepburn is five years beyond her first Oscar-winning performance, and after being branded “box office poison,” she anxiously awaits to hear if she will play ‘Scarlett O’Hara’ in Gone With The Wind. Progressing though time, the story moves to 1983, when Kate's melodic voice is shaky and she clutches at her cane for support after the ravages of Parkinson's disease, yet the same grace, style and poise is still evident in her every elegant word and coy smile. Now, join Kate as she beckons us into her Connecticut home for a cozy chat and an intimate look at the Hollywood legend, and the woman based behind the legend.

"A star turn performance...Zimbalist's power lies in her ability to fully inhabit Hepburn's devil-may-care personality...lovingly rendered and not-be-be missed portrait of a true American icon."

“Brilliantly written by Matthew Lombardo, with superb direction by Jenny Sullivan…Zimbalist becomes Hepburn in body, mind and soul, commanding the stage from the moment we see her.”
