    Palm Springs Women in Film & Television (PSWIFT) has partnered with the Palm Springs Cultural Center to present Supermodel, Beverly Johnson, in her one woman show, “Beverly Johnson, IN VOGUE!” Tickets are now on sale for the event. which will be held June 3, 2023, beginning at 6 p.m.

    Co-written by Johnson and Josh Ravetch, IN VOGUE! tells Johnson's story beginning with her groundbreaking photo on the cover of Vogue Magazine. The show’s director, Josh Ravetch, is a playwright and screenwriter known for co-creating and directing Carrie Fisher’s one woman show “Wishful Drinking” and Dick Van Dyke’s one man show “Step in Time.”

    “Her life took an unexpected turn when she broke her silence, went public, and revealed that she, too, was drugged by Bill Cosby,” said Ravetch. “That disclosure became part of the key momentum that, in part, helped to launch the #MeToo movement.”

    “We’re proud to be partnering with the Palm Springs Cultural Center to bring this amazing story about a woman who graced over 500 magazine covers and remains one of the most iconic figures in the world of fashion and modeling,” said past president of Palm Springs Women in Film & Television, Kim Waltrip.  

    Michael C. Green, executive director of the Palm Springs Cultural Center, added “This is an important program and we are honored to be a part of its premiere.”
