Turning Page Angelica Page
About This Show
Turning Page is a sophisticated, funny and deeply compelling solo show about legendary actress Geraldine Page whose sparkling career earned her a record-breaking eight Academy Award-nominations by her untimely death in 1987. Written and performed by her only daughter Angelica Page with direction by Tony Nominated Wilson Milam, this 98 minute evening in theatre is a magical opportunity to personally encounter one of the most influential, celebrated and private American artists of the 20th century. An intimate story of a true rebel and trail blazer. A masterful woman who was years ahead of her time and must not be forgotten anytime soon.

“Scintillatingly tremendous portrayal” -London Evening Standard
