Valley of the Dolls - Broadway Circle in the Square
Playbill / Program August 1996
This play is based on the Valley of the Dolls is a 1967 American drama film directed by Mark Robson, produced by Robson and David Weisbart, and starring Barbara Parkins, Patty Duke, Sharon Tate and Susan Hayward. It was based on Jacqueline Susann's 1966 novel of the same name. As the fate-plagued heroines, Eliza Coyle (Anne Welles), Kate Flannery (Neely O’Hara) and Lizzie Murray (Jennifer North) have certainly done their homework as they lovingly skewer the film performances of Barbara Parkins, Patty Duke and Sharon Tate, respectively.
As the onstage narrator, Coyle has the prerequisite sophistication and beauty to be believable as Anne, a secretary who is suddenly swept from steno pad to stardom as a television pitch woman. She exhibits a wonderful comedic flare, holding a poignant dramatic pose and then diving head first into a trash can to retrieve Neely O’Hara’s discarded “dolls” (pills). The statuesque Murray is achingly reminiscent of the late Tate’s Jennifer, all wide-eyed, monosyllabic innocence, yet very aware of the value of her “assets” as she deadpans her way from showgirl to porn queen, all for the sake of love.
