Bag&Baggage Presents The Best of Everything @ Venetian Theatre | Based on Rona Jaffe’s 1958 Novel About Working Girls in the Big City

Before Man Men, Peyton Place & Sex & The City, there was The Best of Everything. Rona Jaffe’s controversial 1958 novel about the lives and loves of “working girls” in the big city is considered a breakthrough work, an iconic story that unapologetically and with authentic tenderness explores the trials and tribulations of women’s lives in the late 1950s. The Best of Everything was so groundbreaking that it inspired and influenced dozens of subsequent stories about women in the big city, including a film of the same name starring Joan Crawford, a short-lived television series, and one of the most popular television shows in recent memory, Mad Men.

September 11 @ Aladdin Theater – The formation of The Revivalists was all about chance, but everything since then has been a combination of hard work, awesome music, and friendship.

The result is like English spoken with an exotic accent: familiar, yet difficult to pin down.
