Serendipity Talk: The Incomparable Katherine Hepburn

Dan Sherman, The Incomparable Katherine Hepburn
Tuesday, March 21
3:30-5:00 PM

Born to a wealthy family, Hepburn shot to early fame, winning the first of her four Oscars (a record) when only 26 years old, though she soon became “box office poison.” She quickly brought about her own comeback with The Philadelphia Story and became an icon of screen in both dramatic and comedic roles. This webinar will include many performance excerpts (including her single stage musical!) and discuss her screen persona as an independent woman, her legacy, and her life, including her relationship with Spencer Tracy.

Dan Sherman has taught several courses on musical theater and film musicals at OLLI, along with many other venues in the area. He holds his PhD in economics from Cornell and recently retired as Managing Director at the American Institutes for Research.


No registration is required. The Zoom link will be e-mailed to all those subscribed to the OLLI newsletter the morning of the talk. If you do not receive the newsletter and would like to attend, please e-mail [email protected] that morning.
