Parties, Plays, and more Parties....Part Two
That night was opening night for "Sick" playing at the Berkshire Theatre Festival Unicorn Theatre until September 6. You can get tickets HERE.
Parties, Plays, and more Parties....Part One
Later that evening I went to the dinner where Travis and Alex poured me a Glenlivet to get the evening started.
Photo from Berkshire Theatre Festival newsletter
I saw a lot of old and new friends and got to sit with Hermine and Jan and Marie as well as one of my very favorites, Alexander. Rebecca and Tara also joined our table. The rain did seem to have kept some people at home and it looked like a river had flown through the center of the tent. But the food was delicious, the crowd festive, and The Countess has a great time as usual.
Even later that evening I went over to Michael's for a little karaoke singing. Here I am doing a little back up for Stephanie, a scenic designer at BTF this year....
Cartland was there with his many admirers....
Even Steve came over from Rumpy's to see what all the fuss was about (that's Jason and Keating in the booth with him)....
Frank and Jason sang a couple of songs together.....
and Liz looks so happy and beautiful in this picture.....
And so ends Friday! Now on to Saturday's play and parties!!

Bay Windows honors Ted Kennedy
Ted Kennedy on Health Care
I would be remiss if I did not include an homage on this blog to Ted Kennedy who passed away this past Tuesday. A Kennedy has been in politics in Massachusetts for most of my life. I can still see Jack and Jackie on the stage of my high school auditorium while he was running for President way back in 1960.
Ted Kennedy was not a perfect man, none of the Kennedy brothers were...which is one of the reasons I admire them. They were human just like me with human failings but in spite of personal problems and tragedies, they never failed the people. Ted Kennedy has fought for us since he was a young man and deserves our tears.
Bless you, Teddy. Your lion's roar will be missed in the Senate.

Xingu and the Tanglewood Stage Hand Band !!
Xingu is a most amusing short story and you can read it HERE. The adaptation by Dennis Krausnik brought the story to life.

Dinner with the family
"GHOSTS" a play by Henrik Ibsen
Mia Dillon plays Mrs. Alving. Isn't she beautiful?
David Adkins was sitting on my other side and he said I didn't squee at all....at least not that he noticed. Another night that didn't end until the wee hours of the morning!
