Once upon a time, Marion Kroft was a famous Hollywood child actor. Now, it's the 1950s, and Kroft is the aging, washed-up star of a radio variety show. The diva is desperate to get back into the spotlight by any means necessary, but in an era before Twitter and reality television it's a lot harder to get the public's attention. When she meets an up-and-coming young dancer, the two become fast friends -- and an increasingly popular comedy duo. But as their star rises, the truth behind their partnership starts to come into question. A brand new Old Hollywood fable about the dark side of fame, Born Ready is coming to the Factory Theater in Chicago.
