“Bernhardt on Broadway” is a one-woman musical with twelve showstopping songs about the Divine Sarah Bernhardt. The play is set in the late 1890s when Bernhardt was at the height of her career. She addresses the audience in a relaxed and forthright way, talking about her present and reminiscing about her past – personally and professionally. Carol Dunitz, who wrote the music, script, and lyrics for the show, read close to one hundred books in French and English as well as countless articles and reviews before starting work on ‘Bernhardt on Broadway.’ Her extensive research ensures the audience gains a thorough understanding of this eccentric star and what motivated her to persist, quand meme, against all odds.
