Where do I belong—at home or at work? In Chopin’s poignant A PAIR OF SILK STOCKINGS (1894), widowed Mrs. Sommers takes an impromptu holiday from home. In Ferber’s REPRESENTING T. A. BUCK (1913), divorced =lady salesman= Emma McChesney longs for life off the road. In both women—our ancestors—we see ourselves. Michele LaRue is a professional actress (AEA, SAG-AFTRA) who has specialized in performances from America's Gilded Age for two decades. WOMEN BREAKING LOOSE is recommended for HS - adult audiences. It is especially popular during March, Women's History Month. =I wish you could come into every literature classroom, perform at every library, be on the stage in a theater in every town, helping people connect with that wonderful literature, teaching people to listen to the sounds of wonderful sentences. Do the humanities and arts commissions of every state know about you?= --Susan Koppelman, editor, multiple volumes of 19th-century American women’s short stories

Foreman, Jon The Defibrillators Band Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Aging Baby Boomers now have a band whose music reflects their refusal to grow old gracefully. As pioneers of Senior Citizen Rock and Blue-Haired Blues, The Defibrillators poke good-natured fun at the foils and foibles of aging in their contagious blues-based rock originals. Billing themselves as “the World’s Oldest Boy Band”. Their high caliber of musicianship is offset only by their subtle theatrics during live performances. Their eponymous CD has garnered rave reviews from The New York Times, Newsday, LI Press, Good Times, LI Entertainment, Aural Fix and other local press. All the good fun aside, The Defibrillators have rightfully been called a Super group by the press. The members of the band are all highly accomplished musicians who have made their mark on the music scene.
