Three Waltzes

This specific production does not yet have a description, but the play itself does:

The story is set in three different eras.
Act 1 Victorian.
Backstage at the Alhambra, rising star Katharine Sheridan sacrifices her love for the Hon Richard Wessex in order to advance her career. She accepts a new contract from impresario John Brunner and abandons a distraught Richard.
Act 2 Edwardian.
A generation later, backstage at Daly’s Theatre, famous singer Kate Sheridan (daughter of Katharine from Act 1) is madly in love with the Hon. Dickie Wessex (whose father loved and lost Kate’s mother.) This time Kate does give up her career for love of Dickie, only to find country-life boring, and abandons him when the smell of the greasepaint proves too strong.
Act 3 Georgian.
The third generation of Sheridans sees film-star Kay (daughter of Kate from Act 2) in Hollywood where she meets Dick, son of the previous Dickie. In spite of the urgings of Stanislaus Vayda, the colourful Hungarian film director, this time, Kate finally realises that Love is the most important thing – and she leaves show business to marry and live happily ever after as Mrs Wessex.
