Pail paid an introspective homage to the Hollywood starlit through video, dance, acting and live music. Heartbreaking in moments, while humorous in others, the show took the audience on a journey through the rise and fall of fame in the not-always glamorous 1940s.Something tells me I’m not the only one we left The Gut curious to know more about Rita Hayworth, but more over what Pail might be up to next.

Immediately after her first public performances in Malta with her one woman show on Rita Hayworth, Almog started receiving critical acclaim from international press and media for her multifaceted talent as an all-round performer. It became evident that Almog’s ability in the performing arts was of exceptional quality. Her level of expertise indicated that she was one of the few who have risen to the very top of the performing arts sector and that, while in Malta, she has sustained the international acclaim and recognition she had already received for her work overseas.
