  Miss America's Ugly Daughter: Bess Myerson and Me at Edgemar Center for the Arts

Miss America's Ugly Daughter: Bess Myerson and Me

Edgemar Center for the Arts
2437 Main St. Santa Monica

Following critically acclaimed, sold out runs, first in 2018 and again earlier this year, writer/performer Barra Grant returns once more with her darkly hilarious mother-daughter story: the true, inside tale of Grant’s seismic relationship with her mother, Bess Myerson. A beauty queen best known as the first and only Jewish Miss America, Myerson was an accomplished pianist, television personality, New York City’s first Commissioner of Consumer Affairs, a close advisor to Mayor Ed Koch, and a national spokesperson against anti-Semitism. Then, she infamously went down in flames — with her Mafia boyfriend! — in a judge-bribing scandal known as the “Bess Mess.” If you missed Grant’s fascinating tale about being a confused ugly duckling growing up in the shadow of her spectacular mother, here’s your chance.
