Musical ()

Music: Marvin Hamlisch Lyrics: Christopher Adler Book: Julian Barry Director: Peter Hall Choreographer: Irving Davies

Résumé: Jean Seberg was an Iowa girl who had shown sympathy for black causes since she was 14. She was discovered by Otto Preminger at 17 and pitch-forked in at the deep end to play St Joan of Arc after a much publicised talent hunt. The critics gave her hell until Jean Luc Goddard’s “Breathless” made her the symbol of the New Wave. She married Romain Gary, fought with the Black Panthers and perhaps slept with some of them. She became a victim of J. Edgar Hoover’s obsessive hatred and of his smear techniques. Finally she took her own life in Paris.
