Scorsese at the Wallis – Beverly Hills Women’s Club Celebrates Centennial

The enchanting Wallis Theatre in B.H. was transformed into an Italian Street Scene for the production of Scorsese – American Crime Requiem. Set in a cabaret setting, complete with a bartender, who transforms into Taxi Driver! They even had some fortunate guests seated at café tables on stage. In collaboration with the innovative theater company For the Record, this movie/musical collage, blends iconic scenes from Scorsese’s films, with music from the flicks – performed by Broadway caliber artists.

Gorgeous Carmen Cusak, portraying Ginger from Casino (Sharon Stone was in the movie) stood out warbling I’m Sorry. To keep in the Italian mood, Pia Toscano crooned Il Cieo in Una Stana from Goodfellas. A most entertaining evening indeed.

Being a Beverly Hills resident for 3 decades, I have heard only good things about the Beverly Hills Women’s Club – so I decided to finally give it a try. I was most impressed by the lovely location, attractive décor & the quality of their members & guests. President Mumsey Nemiroff, presents a series of cultural programs, including French language classes, book club & monthly art talks. As a Society Columnist, of special interest is their diverse social calendar, filled with delicious luncheons, exciting events and philanthropic endeavors.

We were treated to a Vintage Fashion Show, presented by Elizabeth Mason (The Paper Bag Princess) whose theme was 100 Years of Fashion. Actually, this was very apropos since the Club is celebrating its Centennial Year. The models were all members of the club, including some friends of mine – Mara New & Agnes Nicole, looking fab in a 1950’s Ceil Champman cocktail dress. We also were treated to a lecture by Award Winning Costume Designer, Daniel Orlandi (Down With Love & The DA Vinci Code) who took us thru the magical world of motion picture costume design.
