About Better Than Sex: The Story of Mae West

Through this icon we hear the tale that led to the rise and fall of her scandalous career, with live performances of the songs she made famous including “A Guy What Takes His Time” and “I’m No Angel”. This is a cabaret to entertain but also to tell an important story of a woman who didn’t let the social constructs of her time stop her from having the career and leading the life she wanted, therefore being a source of inspiration still to women of today. Written and directed by Emily Hutt, and starring Bella Bevan as Mae West herself. This show has been performed at Toulouse Lautrec and Mountview’s Catalyst Festival in 2019. ★★★★ “Bella Bevan plays the role of West, and my is Bevan one to watch! Bevan’s voice slides skilfully around West’s famous jazz numbers…delivered with comedic precision by Bevan” (Upper Circle Theatre) ★★★★“a really loving rendition of the life of this multi-talented thespian” (LondonTheatre1)
