Chion Wolf, Debi Freund, Angie Joachim, Tracy Wu Fastenberg and yours truly (making my Connecticut performance debut) will be the quartet of local folks reading from David Sedaris' semi-twisted stories from his “Holidays on Ice” collection of short stories on Tuesday, Dec. 20 at 7:30 at the Mark Twain House & Museum, 351 Farmington Ave. The event, directed by Jacques Lamarre, is called “Christmas Punch.”
Joachim, a New Orleans actress now in the state, will read “Greetings to Our Friends and Family!!” Fastenberg, aka “Asian Persuasion,” will also appear with Joachim.
Freund is a local actor and director, most known for her association with the Little Theater of Manchester. She will “Based on a True Story,” about “a Hollywood mover and shaker shaking down a church full of country bumpkins.”
Wolf is an actress, producer, photographer, and songwriter and a familiar voice on Connecticut Public Radio's “The Colin McEnroe Show.” Wolf will read “Christmas Means Giving.”
I will read “Front Row Center with Thaddeus Bristol,” “about a vicious theater critic's review of children's Christmas pageants.” It won't be a stretch.
Tickets are $15 / $10 for museum members. Information: 860-280-3130 and www.marktwainhouse.org.
