Director Eve Brandstein is a big fan of Barra Grant’s story of growing up in the shadow of her famous mother, the first Jewish Miss America and trailblazer Bess Myerson.

She directed the premiere and sold-out run of Miss America’s Ugly Daughter: Bess Myerson & Me last summer at The Edye at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica and is helming the return run, back by popular demand, Feb. 8-March 24 at the Greenway Court Theatre, 544 N. Fairfax Ave., L.A.

“Growing up in the Bronx, I had always heard about Bess Myerson,” says Brandstein. “She was an icon of our immigrant family and I found her fascinating. And I remembered the scandal.”
