Thanks to Actors Guild of Lexington's box office manager Hilary Brown, I have a few photos of rehearsals from Belle Brezing, which opens at Actors Guild of Lexington next week.

With a stellar cast under the direction of Tonda Leah Fields, audiences are sure to flock to new AGL location on Harrodsburg Road in the coming weeks.

If you have not visited AGL recently, you will love the abundant parking, the close proximity to Ramsey's and other shops, and the fresh feeling of the new venue - check it out!

Belle Brezing, the legendary madam who inspired Belle Watley of Gone With the Wind fame, is one of the most charismatic, colorful and scandalous women ever to come out of the South. When she died in August, 1939, the New York Times ran her obit on the front page (“Died: Famed Ky. bawd”) and Time Magazine paid tribute to Miss Brezing, whose house of pleasure on Lexington's Megowan Street was known as the “most orderly of disorderly houses.” 

Pete Sears and Annie Barbera

Local playwright Margaret C. Price explores the twilight of the Lexington Madam’s death, when, haunted by her former lover’s spirit, Belle remembers what she had devoted a life-time to forgetting in order to forgive herself - beyond Life.
