Kogda-to - even in the fifties - Joy Valderrama was the main beautiful Temple University (Temple University). This exotic beauty has Originally from Hawaii (Hawaii); in addition to the exterior, it could boast of some good success in tennis and swimming.
Shortly after graduation, Joey met with George Abbott - at that time he led a group of Broadway actors and has already become famous as an outstanding director and screenwriter. Met Valderrama and Abbott in Philadelphia - where George worked on the musical Fiorello `` ( `Fiorello`). Another sister Joy was an inveterate theater-goer; at night party to celebrate the opening of the season Valderrama and met her future husband. At the time, Abbott had a reputation as a person of strict, severe; nobody even dared to think about how to address him by name - solely `Mr. Ebbot`, no options. Reverence is, though flattered by the producer, after hours could not be annoying. When George came out to the people `` with Prince Hal (Hal Prince), he always insisted that he was not called `` Mr.
As she tells Joey, upon closer inspection, Abbott was surprisingly gentle, sincere person. His gray-blue eyes and athletic body, a clear sign that the sport George knew firsthand, forever sunk into the soul of an actress; she herself is rumored to have won him a hint of Asia, through to her appearance.
The age difference - and at the moment they met Abbot was 72 years old - did not prevent Joy and George come together - Valderrama was just still, and Abbott loved to communicate with young people. `24 They met, and then - in 1983 - successfully married. Immediately after the wedding, Joy automatically become a great-grandmother - one of the granddaughters George had already by that time to have a baby.

Valderrama led several boutiques - Philadelphia (Philadelphia) and Cherry Hill (Cherry Hill); We called her boutiques `Moana` s `. In addition, Valderrama suit their own fashion shows.
In 1995, Abbott died - at that time he was already 107 years old. Even in the last years of his life he did not lose its iron grip - his wife told me that just before his death, he continued to dictate the revived version of the script `Pajama Game`.
February 13th, 2001, at the Musical Theatre Prince (Prince Music Theater) was a unique evening in memory of the producer - has organized his Joy, together with a star of Broadway musicals Davis Gaines (Davis Gaines).
