Sometimes being true to oneself is more complicated than it sounds…

In the play A Bad Year for Tomatoes by John Patrick, Myra Marlowe is just an actress looking for some peace and quiet. In order to ensure her “kindly” neighbors leave her alone, she invents a scary sister who is hungry to chop off the ears of strangers. Of course, Myra means no harm in creating this false persona, which is more than we can say for some real life imposters. Check out this article from TIME.com which gives a run down of the top 10 imposters of all time. And remember, honesty is always the best policy.

Miss Ericson received the award at graduation on Monday, June 16, and plans to attend Naropa University in Colorado in the fall.

The True Crime Story Behind Arsenic and Old Lace

It’s probably true that most popular comedies are not based on serial murderers, however there is always an exception to most every rule. Arsenic and Old Lace was actually inspired by an eccentric older woman by the name of Amy Archer-Gilligan who ran a convalescent home in Windsor, Connecticut. Though we feel horribly for her victims, we can’t help but thank her for the material.

This article sheds some light on the interesting history of this old classic. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/true-crime-story-behind-classic-comedy-arsenic-old-lace-article-1.462904

Tickets for  Arsenic and Old Lace can be paid for Online using PayPal™ Services and at Box Office (Door).
