A Conversation with NORA DUNN
The many supreme talents of stage, television and film star Nora Dunn are all front an center in her new one woman show, Mythical Proportions, which is now having its premiere at Theater Wit. In this intimate interview, we set aside all the common questions Ms. Dunn has answered time after time and entered into a free form conversation. We discussed past and current events, growing up during the Civil Rights movement, and the ever changing face of our social world. What we ended up with is a true look inside the heart and soul of Ms. Dunn and the truth she speaks in Mythical Proportions. For more information visit TheaterWit.com.
Nora Dunn in Mythical Proportions
Theater Wit – 1229 W Belmont Ave
Nora Dunn’s singular solo performance emerges from the memories of a mythical 87-year-old Hollywood doyenne who discovered the greatest stars of the 50’s, the musings of a seven-year old girl who is mystified by the small world of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood and the life of the inmates in a TV series called Lockdown, a 65-year-old woman, Mrs. Williams, who chronicles a family history tainted by racism yet grounded in love, and a dreamy middle-aged English bookkeeper who’s ill-fated vacation to Southern California ends in tragedy. Dunn’s personal stories from her childhood in Chicago’s West Side collide with the tales of the rich and powerful players in show business. Running Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
