Beaton’s photographs showed his versatility; his diaries exposed the cost. Coming soon to The Phoenix Theatre: Cecil Beaton’s Diaries!
For the first time, the diaries of photographer and designer Sir Cecil Beaton come to the stage, to accompany his most iconic images! Blisteringly funny – with appearances ranging from the Queen Mother and Elizabeth Taylor, to Churchill and Capote, the diaries paint a self-portrait of the 20th century’s most compelling dandy. Performed by Richard Stirlin (Bridgerton and The Man who Fell to Earth)
