An Actress stands at the top of the 50 foot ‘H’, looking down on a city of broken dreams. She has only ever wanted one thing: to be a star.

A play with music about the quest for fame, inspired by the secrets and forgotten histories of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign includes songs composed for Hollywood’s greatest stars – Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow and more…

Written & Performed by Joanne Hartstone
Directed by Vince Fusco
Presented by KADM Productions (Matt Morillo – Execute Producer)

★★★★★ “A masterful performance… the best piece of theatre this Fringe” (

★★★★½ “[Hartstone’s] performance is outstanding” (Adelaide Theatre Guide)

“A one of a kind show… Hartstone’s contralto vocals make you think of a young Judy Garland” (Broadway World)

★★★★ “A play about the typical quest for fame countless people have over the decades. Some may have heard whispers of past movie scandals, which this show deliciously serves up… Filled with a smattering of gossip of fallen idols and dubious industry practices, it’s hardly a rosy picture of L.A.’s most famous allure. But within them hide morality tales of wanting something so desperately that it ultimately can destroy you” (Glam Adelaide)

“Be magically transported into Hartstone’s faraway world of Hollywood at its ruthless fairy-story height” (Barefoot Review)

“Hartstone commands the attention of her audience throughout the nostalgic performance” (

“Hartstone is endearing… She manoeuvres the stage well, nails the old Hollywood sound and transports us to MGM sets and producer meetings” (The Advertiser/AdelaideNow)

“Hartstone is a talented actor, who also has a decent set of lungs, as the show is littered with songs like a classic MGM musical” (The Adelaide Review)
