Head Check

Legendary costume designer Edith Head is a fashion icon, known for her heavy-framed glasses, eight Academy Awards for dressing actors ranging from Audrey Hepburn to Steve Martin, and quotable one-liners.

Memorable quips – including sassy bits like “I hate modesty, don’t you?” – are the basis for actress Susan Claassen’s performance in the one-woman show A Conversation with Edith Head. Claassen dishes on the design diva’s personal life, and her behind-the-scenes career costuming over 1,000 films during the production.

Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m.; Thursdays, 7 p.m.; Wed., Sept. 28, 7 p.m. Starts: Sept. 16. Continues through Oct. 2, 2011
