Girl next door, sex kitten, activist, fitness tycoon: Oscar-Winner Jane Fonda has lived a life marked by controversy, tragedy and transformation, and she's done it all in the public eye. On stage, Fonda shares an intimate look at her singular journey. She has been vilified as "Hanoi Jane" lusted after as "Barbarella" and heralded as a beacon of the women's movement. A conversation with Fonda goes to the heart of who she really is, a blend of deep vulnerability, magnetism, naivete and bravery, revealing a life transformed over time. Fonda speaks candidly and frankly about her life and her missteps. This 80-year-old's busy life today is at, as she puts it, "the beginning of my last act."
