Just got back from Cleveland where my friend Sally Groth was finishing up her run as "Medea" in the Robinson Jeffers adaptation at Actors Summit in Hudson, OH. Saw it Friday and Saturday night. She was fantastic and the Cleveland Plain Dealer praised her to the skies. (The frightened looking woman behind her is the Nurse, Paula Duesling, another fine actress in the area.) The show closed yesterday, but you can read more about it here.
Besides playing Medea for four performances this weekend, she also made a great brunch - poached eggs on Swiss chard, fried green tomatoes, and biscuits with homemade apple butter. It's fun to go to the farmers' market with Medea!
Sally and her husband John have two beautiful pre-schoolers, Sam and Annie. No, they were not allowed to see Mommy in this one.
