This Coming Monday: The Necromancers Do Laurette Taylor, et al

This coming Monday, June 17, 8 p.m., I’ll be performing once again in Necromancers of the Public Domain , the terrific monthly series produced by Theatre of the Apes. This month we will be interpreting the 101 year old book The Greatest of These by the great actress Laurette Taylor. I’m particularly excited to be on the bill with Emily Frembgen, with whom I’ve been appearing in Jason Trachtenburg’s play Me and Lee.

In addition to Taylor, my bit will reference several other folks we’ve written about on Travalanche, for they are mentioned in the book! Including Mrs. Fiske, George M. Cohan, Chauncey Olcott, DeWolf Hopper, Julia Arthur, Nora Bayes, and Frank Tinney.

It’s all at The Tank, 312 West 36th Street (btwn 8th and 9th). To sample the strangeness, go here.
