Corset to Blame for Collins' Moon Failure???

By • West End
American actor Frank Langella, recently fled back Stateside, apparently hasn't been the only disgruntled star in Ken Ludwig's Over the Moon, which closes prematurely this weekend after largely poor reviews. Leading lady Joan Collins has written in this week's Spectator, heaping scorn on producer Bill Kenwright and his publicity people for their handling of the show. In particular, for that photo - you know the one, showing 68-year-old Collins in ringlets, corset and suspenders - that was emblazoned across many a tabloid page during the show's previews. Collins claims that it was this "gratuitous and undignified" publicity shot that was to blame for her critical drubbing days later. "Many of the scathing reviews focused on how outrageous I was to have posed for that picture," she writes. Nothing to do with the quality of her performance then.
