Join Martina Mathisen in her inimitable one-woman show, "Meet Mae West," a fundraiser for Steel Beam Theatre in St. Charles that will livestream at 7 p.m. Sept. 27, a news release stated.

West shattered box office records and public sensibilities. She rocketed from Broadway to become the highest-paid actress in Hollywood. Her one-liners scandalized the censors yet made her an icon. She rescued studios from bankruptcy and created stars. Without her, Cary Grant might have remained a nobody.

Meet the woman behind the wit.

Tickets cost $10. A link or password will be sent to patrons, so they can enter the event on the day of performance. To purchase tickets, find the show by scrolling to the "Next Up" section of the website at www.steelbeamtheatre.org.

The production kicks off a series of livestream events continuing the theater's season themed "Women of Steel."

"Meet Mae West" promises a lively night of livestreamed entertainment to support Steel Beam Theatre in St. Charles.
