Sandy-Cancelled Show To Go On In Chester
Author Ilene Beckerman to appear at the Black River Playhouse.
Ilene Beckerman, author of the bestselling Love, Loss, and What I Wore, will be part of the seven member cast of the Chester Theatre Group’s production of the show, to be held at the Black River Playhouse Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1 and 2 at 8 p.m. and on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 2 p.m.
The production was re-scheduled from its original dates in November due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy.
Directed by Cindy Alexander, the play, which was adapted for the stage by Nora and Delia Ephron, ran successfully off-Broadway for several seasons garnering rave reviews. The New York Times called the show “funny, compelling” and said that it “brought down the house”. Told through a series of monologue readings, the play weaves stories about women, clothes and memory covering all the important subjects and their impact on moments in their lives. There will be a talk-back with the cast after each performance
In addition to Ms. Beckerman, who will portray the part of Gingy, the cast includes, Ellen Fraker-Glasscock, (Chester) Kathleen Campbell Jackson, (Far Hills), Carla Kendall (Wayne), Gloria Lamoureux (Succasunna), Jodi Maloy,(Cedar Ridge), and Roseann Ruggiero (Ledgewood).
