Eva is back – and this time she means SHOW business!
The world’s greatest cabaret star turned double agent is finally following her dream and is Tinseltown-bound. As she basks in the glitz and glamour of the 1950's LA lifestyle of pool parties, cocktails and orgies, she unearths a dark truth behind its red velvet curtains: Women are undervalued and over-groped. Excess and addiction are the norm, and Eva learns the true price of fame: secrets and lies, murder and betrayal.Eva is surrounded with heartthrobs and bombshells and gangsters…but who exactly, is who?
The Golden Age of the Silver Screen is plagued with scandal, sex, drugs, desire and deceit. Is Eva to blame? Or can our Hero save Hollywood?
The year of 2020 was going to be BIG... How Eva Saved Hollywood was destined to make waves at Brighton's premiere comedy venue: KOMEDIA as part of Brighton Fringe and then as part of the Edinburgh Fringe institution: THE PLEASANCE THEATRE. But the cosmos Brough us Covid-19 instead.

WITHIN HER WORDS
“Fun...gorgeous & camp...brilliant...glorious...hilarious...
an unexpected wild ride of a show”
“Hilariously irreverent…Eva is impossible to dislike. She is rude, crude, unapologetically confident… her quick-wittedness and brilliant audience interaction should never be underestimated”
Eva performed this newly developed version for a one-night-only extravaganza on 19 Feb as part of London's biggest, boldest, and wildest arts and entertainment festival: VAULT Festival
This show premiered as a work-in-progress as part of Voila! Europe Theatre Festival at The Cockpit Theatre in November 2019. Special thanks go out to Sharlit & Amy for their trust in the powers of Eva - and for the creative support in the development of this piece of theatre.
