A "Celebrating Seniors Week" special event! See "The Garbo, The Musical," an original one-woman musical on the enigmatic Swedish film star, Greta Garbo (1905-1990) by Jillann Gabrielle. Considered by many the greatest film actress of all time, Greta Garbo's image was that of androgynous glamour. A world-wide phenomenon, she shunned the limelight.
