I’m not sure whose stocking is whose yet - mine, my brother’s, or his fiancee’s - but they’re pretty much always guaranteed to be filled with things we need.
Our [parents’] tree is always a glorious mishmash of ornaments, many that are many generations old. Pretty much each one has a story - from the ones my brother and I made when we were small to the angel that graces the top of the tree.
They used one of my WATERMARKED PHOTOS! YES! (That’s not SOP, as the photos that we release to press are never watermarked, so I’m assuming they pulled it from this blog. Reasons to always watermark your photos? Yes, plz!)
Don’t forget - Tru Grace runs through December 27! You should totally see it ASAP.
Last Chance for Tru Grace at Central Square Theater
Did you know that Tru Grace: Holiday Memoirs runs through December 27th? What a great holiday treat! Share it with your family this season!
Did you also know that there are two casts of the Grace Paley story? These kids have been working SO hard, and they’re all SO fabulous. This is Kiva McElhiney, playing Shirley Abramowitz, and Ollie Sussman playing Marty (as Jesus) in The Loudest Voice:
And, as always, Michael Forden Walker and Debra Wise, playing Truman Capote and older cousin Sook in A Christmas Memory.
If you haven’t seen this show, you NEED to. It’s so wonderful - but not in that overly familiar, cheesy Nutcracker-and-A-Christmas-Carol way (not that there’s anything wrong with those shows - it’s just nice to have a change of pace).
If you’re looking for cheap tickets to Tru Grace, Cheap Thrills Boston (another awesomely cool blog) just offered $10 tickets with discount code “THRILLS” at checkout. Do yourself a favor, and go see it.
…just how much I adore Debra Wise? She’s a fabulous actress, and as the Artistic Director of Underground Railway Theater (in residence at Central Square Theater), she always gives me plenty of fodder for great stories and fabulous images.
Here she is in A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote (the second half of the production Tru Grace: Holiday Memoirs) where she plays “Sook” - the older, distant, and seemingly ‘slow’ cousin of “Buddy”.
