Update Number 273.
November 4, 2012
Hello, Dark Shadows Fan,
ShadowGram (SG), The Official Newsletter & News Source for Dark Shadows (DS), announces the following breaking news in this Official Online News Update "bulletin."

**** JERRY LACY IN WORLD PREMIERE PLAY
**** CHRIS PENNOCK IN COMEDY PLAY
**** 3 DS ACTORS APPEAR IN NEW "PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER" FILM

---- JERRY LACY IN NEW PLAY, "SURVIVING MAMA"
Jerry (Tony Peterson, Rev. Trask, Lamar Trask, Gregory Trask) is "Father" and "Pinsky" in the world premiere of "Surviving Mama," currently onstage in Santa Monica, CA.
Using flashbacks and contemporary scenes, the family drama is based on the Holocaust experiences of the playwright's mother, a feisty woman who escaped Nazi Germany in 1939 and eventually settled in Los Angeles. The character of "Mama" now suffers from dementia and declining health. Her adult daughters are considering placing her in an eldercare facility - and she reacts to their efforts.
Publicity: "Mama, who has survived many crises in her life, now battles her daughters who want to move her to a 'home.' Courageous, street smart and fiercely independent, Mama impacts everyone who knows her. While Mama's fate is being determined, long-held family secrets are revealed. A stunning, emotional drama."
Performances: Fridays @ 8:00, Saturdays @ 3:00 and @ 8:00, and Sundays @ 5:00. Tickets are $34.99.
Running through 11-18, "Surviving Mama" is at the Edgemar Center for the Arts, 2437 Main St., Santa Monica, CA. 310-392-7327. www.survivingmamatheplay.com

..
"We've been working on this for several months at the Actors Studio. West Coast Artistic Directors, Martin Landau and Mark Rydell, approved the cast themselves (kind of cool, if we do say so ourselves).
"It's a fun and touching comedy set in 1942 England about a touring theatre company's leading man and his dresser one night backstage during a production of KING LEAR . The cast of this production are all Life Members of the Actors Studio.
"The best part is it's absolutely FREE!!! FOR EVERYONE!!! Make your reservation and come along to enjoy some really fun theater."

Publicity: 'Hollinsworth Productions is excited to present DOCTOR MABUSE - a psychological thriller about the original criminal mastermind! Dr. Mabuse... hypnotist... genius... criminal mastermind... but who is he really? The film stars Jerry Lacy as the nefarious Dr. Mabuse,.... as well as DS actresses Kathryn Leigh Scott and Lara Parker.

---- MARIE WALLACE INJURED DURING PLAY PERFORMANCE
Last month, SG Update #271 reported news from Marie (Eve, Jenny, Megan) about her starring role as "Carol" in THE LAST ROMANCE at the 7 Angels Theatre in Waterbury, CT. The play opened Oct 18.
However, on Oct. 21, Marie accidentally fell off the stage during the blackout at the end of Act One and broke her shoulder. She underwent surgery a couple of days later.
SG joins DS fans everywhere in wishing Marie a quick, easy, and complete recovery. May you soon be back 100%, Marie!

Saw this segment from Open House NYC on NBC in Los Angeles (where it's simply called Open House):  Square Feet: Go Inside a Gilded Age Mansion on the River  The residence for sale (now at a reduced price from it's nearly $2 million price tag) is 1 of 3 in the original Vanderlip mansion known as Beechwood in Briarcliff, NY.  The exterior of Beechwood looks pretty much as it did when it stood in as the Old House in HoDS, and it's within walking distance of the site of the original Scarbrough train station seen in Ep #1 of DS.  This clip gives you a look at, among other things, the original master bedroom, but sadly, the mansion's infamous staircase (where Frid's Barnabas beat Willie with his cane) was removed when the mansion was subdivided.

On tonight's Jeopardy (I'm paraphrasing)-- This star of the Dark Shadows movie was a sun bunny who became Miss Orange County.  The question, of course, is Who is...?  [hall2_wink]



Also, check out the tribute image atop the home page of Voy Forums: Barbara's Obits and Memorials.  The jpeg is titled "the real Barnabbas [sic]".  With thanks to Kosmo!
