Coco- musical: Coco Chanel’s life

Since the second half of XX-th century mysterious life of Coco Chanel inspired writers and producers. Each of them tried to present Coco’s creativity in their own way. The musical «Coco» was rather popular on the Broadway in the sixties last century. Unlike the majority of other Coco Chanel’s biographies, the Coco- musical has more focus on the period of Chanel’s mature life with her efforts to save the position of her fashion house rather than on a Coco’s formation as a designer. Producers tried to keep Coco’s biography untouched and with only a few changes to a scenic part, the legendary musical has revived again. Sara Kestelman will act as Coco Chanel while earlier the role was played by Katharine Hepburn and Ginger Rogers. You may watch the play on the stage of the Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London.
