Actor, dancer, director, author, activist, legend. Shirley MacLaine has forged a powerhouse presence on the world stage that spans seven decades and countless indelible performances, from Irma La Douce and Sweet Charity to Terms of Endearment, Steel Magnolias andDownton Abbey.

With her razor sharp wit and scintillating insights into the brightest stars and deepest secrets of American showbiz, an intimate evening with this multi-award-winning icon of stage, screen and beyond is a head-spinning journey from the golden age of Hollywood to the modern celebrity era of Oprah and "Glee", spiced with the fearless outlook that has made her a best-selling author.

From the Las Vegas Rat Pack to Broadway, Alfred Hitchcock to Peter Sellers, Elizabeth Taylor to Julia Roberts, the Oscars to the French Legion of Honour, Shirley MacLaine has forged a stellar career that shows no sign of slowing with her imminent role in Wild Oats opposite Demi Moore and Jessica Lange.

Fresh from her Lifetime Achievement honours from the American Film Institute and her 15th book, What If ... a lifetime of questions, speculations, reasonable guesses, and a few things I know for sure, she is visiting New Zealand for the very first time to weave a tantalising personal history of the silver screen and the shadows that dwell behind it.

Don’t miss this exclusive audience with one of the most dynamic and enduring of Hollywood legends, arch raconteur and provocative visionary, for one night only on the 60th anniversary of her debut feature role.
