MY WITCH - The Margaret Hamilton Stories By: John Ahlin with Jean Tafler
This fun, haunting, and delightful solo show, directed by Will Pomerantz and starring the playwright's wife Jean Tafler (for whom he wrote it), invites audiences on a mysterious Halloween weekend visit to Hamilton's secluded home on Cape Island in Maine. Just how did a gentle kindergarten teacher from Cleveland wind up scaring the living daylights out of every last one of us as "The Wicked Witch of the West"? And just how much heart, courage, and brains did it take her to become one of America's most beloved character actresses? If you love "The Wizard of Oz", if you love all things Hollywood, and especially if you love the theater, this show is a valentine to all three, but it's also a loving tribute to the real woman behind the cackle.
