Monday morning. What a great day! Lisette and I interviewed Jennifer Coburn and her daughter Katie at Riviera 31 (inside the Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills, California). We enjoyed a lively and candid conversation that I can’t wait to share with you! Look for it on https://EncinoMom.com in mid- July! Of course, if you subscribe to our channel, you’ll be sure to see it and you’ll be able to enter our giveaways exclusively for our YouTube audience (currently we are giving away a $50 gift card to Daphne’s California Greek – see details on our site).
We got a standing ovation last night for our reading of IVY! Everyone did a great job, with stage directions read by Wyatt Brown, the ensemble of actors portrayed the many characters who played roles in the story of Ivy Botini’s real life. With a stand out performance by Bonita Friedericy in the title role, Drew Katzman, Pat Lentz, Loren Lester, Wendy Levin and I each undertook multiple roles in service of the story. The script was written by Al Schnupp and Ellyn Gersh Lerner, a labor of love for the past year or so, and Lerner also directed the reading. We were delighted to present the piece as part of The City of West Hollywood’s One City One Pride LGBTQ Arts Festival with special guest, Ivy Bottini seated in the middle of the first row!
With all good wishes to the playwrights and little luck, too, we look forward to hearing more about this new work!
