Actress Linda Kenyon
The Marsh Theater in Berkeley on Tuesday, Feb. 15, will host an exclusive showing of “A Life of My Own: Meeting Eleanor Roosevelt” to benefit the North County Women’s Center of Berkeley Food and Housing Project.
Actress Linda Kenyon brings to life one of America’s most beloved First Ladies, following Eleanor’s evolution from uncertain young bride to an American woman of strong opinions and towering influence.
Ellie Seagraves, granddaughter of Eleanor Roosevelt, says Kenyon has the “voice, gestures, warmth and engaging personal touches of Eleanor Roosevelt. What Kenyon does with this role is the best I’ve seen or heard.” Kenyon has appeared on stage, television and screen.
The Marsh Theater is located at 2120 Allston Way in Berkeley. The performance begins at 8 p.m., and tickets are $25 at the door.
