Martha Mitchell is a must-see
I'm unable to go to Geralyn's performance of her Martha Mitchell piece tomorrow night, sponsored by the Women's Alliance, but I stumbled upon a dress rehearsal of it today. I felt very lucky to have been able to see it! I highly recommend that anyone who's on the fence -- and anyone who hasn't even considered going, for that matter -- GO see it. It's funny, sad, moving -- and extremely well done, theatrically. Gave me a whole new perspective on the whole Watergate period, too. --Bobbie Sproat (01/05/07)
