Manhattan Theatre Club’s World Premiere of Lost Lake

Manhattan Theatre Club’s

World Premiere of Lost Lake

 Opens at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street)


Manhattan Theatre Club’s world premiere of Lost Lake, the new play by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, featuring Oscar nominee John Hawkes (The Sessions, Winter’s Bone) and Tracie Thoms (Rent, “Cold Case”), opens at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).


The team behind the Pulitzer Prize-winning Proof and The Columnist returns to MTC with Lost Lake, a riveting and spirited world premiere play by Tony winner David Auburn, directed by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan.


The lakeside rental Veronica (Tracie Thoms) has managed to afford is a far cry from the idyllic getaway she and her children so desperately need. And the disheveled property owner, Hogan (John Hawkes), has problems of his own – problems that Veronica is inevitably and irrevocably – pulled into.


An engrossing and revealing portrait of two strangers bound together by circumstance, Lost Lake is a vivid new work about the struggle for connection in an imperfect world.


The creative team for Lost Lake features J. Michael Griggs (scenic design), Jess Goldstein (costume design), Robert Perry (lighting design), Fitz Patton (original music & sound design), and Thomas Schall (movement consultant).


Under the leadership of Artistic Director Lynne Meadow and Executive Producer Barry Grove, MTC has become one of the country’s most prominent and prestigious theatre companies. Over the past four and a half decades, MTC productions have earned numerous awards including 6 Pulitzer Prizes and 19 Tony Awards. MTC has a Broadway home at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street) and two Off-Broadway theatres at New York City Center (131 West 55th Street). Renowned MTC productions include Casa Valentina; Outside Mullingar; The Assembled Parties; Venus in Fur; Master Class; Good People; The Whipping Man; Time Stands Still; The Royal Family; Ruined; Come Back, Little Sheba; Blackbird; Shining City; Rabbit Hole; Doubt; Proof; The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife; Love! Valour! Compassion!; A Small Family Business; Sylvia; Putting It Together; Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune; Crimes of the Heart; and Ain’t Misbehavin.’

Look around the Mark Twain House in a whole new way

with a new room added every Monday morning!




Starting on Monday, November 10, and continuing every Monday through February, The Mark Twain House will be rolling out a new 360-degree panoramic Virtual Tour of the Mark Twain House.  See the house is a whole new light, and prepare for an in-person visit!


Rolling out this first Monday is an exterior view of the house, which starts with the startling shot above. Enjoy being able to examine the intricate detail of this picturesque gothic mansion and the wonderful view of the front yard and Carriage House.


Subsequent Mondays will show the Front Hall, the Drawing Room, the Dining Room, the Library, and then on to the second and third floors of Mark Twain’s wonderful historic home.  National Geographic recently named The Mark Twain House “one of the ten best historic homes in the world” in The 10 Best of Everything book. Only two other homes in the United States made that list–Monticello and Mount Vernon.


Visit the new interactive map of the house to see these panoramic virtual tours, and enjoy a taste of what people on the house tours experience in person!  (The Virtual Tours can also be found by clicking on the House tab on the home page of the, then clicking on Virtual Tours on the right side menu.)


Executive director Cindy Lovell believes the virtual tours will boost visitation to the House. “We have undertaken a serious initiative to increase tourism and are confident these 360-degree virtual tours are a step in the right direction,” she said. “Seeing the unique details of the home, such as the Tiffany stencils or the angel bed, should sufficiently intrigue viewers to come visit. We also realize that there are millions of Mark Twain fans around the world who may never have the opportunity to visit in person. This offers the next best thing.”


Photographer Chris Bain ( created the tours on a sunny, fall morning. “I have photographed many beautiful sites all around the world, but there is something extraordinary about this place,” he said. “When I first walked into the Front Hall, I turned my head in every direction, immediately wanting to create a 360-degree virtual tour. It is easy to imagine the family appearing at any moment. The house feels lived in.”


Mark Twain was fascinated by technology, including the evolving process of photography. The Kodak camera was invented during his lifetime, which enabled just about anyone to become a photographer. “Kodak” became a verb as people “kodak’d” everything and everyone in sight. Twain playfully wrote in Following the Equator, “Crossed the equator. In the distance it looked like a blue ribbon stretched across the ocean. Several passengers kodak’d it.” There is no telling what he would say about these virtual tours of his home, but it is likely he would approve.


The Mark Twain House & Museum ( has restored the author’s Hartford, Connecticut, home, where Samuel L. Clemens and his family lived from 1874 to 1891.
Twain wrote his most important works during the years he lived there, including Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.

In addition to providing tours of Mark Twain’s restored home, a National Historic Landmark, the institution offers activities and educational programs that illuminate Twain’s literary legacy and provide information about his life and times.

The house and museum at 351 Farmington Ave. are open Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. For more information, call 860-247-0998 or visit

Programs at The Mark Twain House & Museum are made possible in part by support from the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts and the Greater Hartford Arts Council United Arts Campaign.

Riding My Way Back
A New Documentary Film by Academy Award

In 2010, Staff Sergeant Aaron Heliker returned from multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), in addition to third-degree burns and nerve damage from a roadside bomb. At his most desperate and isolated, on 42 medications and suicidal, Aaron is introduced to the unlikeliest of saviors: a horse named Fred. Through caring for Fred and building mutual trust, Aaron begins the difficult process of reconnecting to the world around him and healing the terrible, invisible wounds of war that had nearly defeated him.

HerTube Celebrates its 1 Year Anniversary; What’s Next For The Hybrid Company

HerTube TV Celebrate 1 Year Anniversary

HerTube which is a video & TV network about women and what women care about was launched October 2013 celebrates its one year anniversary.  HerTube is the brainchild of Audrey Bell-Kearney and is under the umbrella of Ms. Boss Media a marketing and consulting firm where Audrey is the president.  HerTube host a roster of women who produce their own show that is distributed across the HerTube media network which includes online, Roku, Smart TVs, Vimeo and YouTube where Audrey is a YouTube Partner.  The content produced by the women is also distributed across the HerTube app that can be downloaded to your IPhone, Samsung phones & tablets including Amazon Kindle Fire.  So the network hosts over 200 videos from its producers.  HerTube is a win win for all involved because when we launched we needed content so we looked for women who wanted to be on TV and that’s how we got our first group of producers states Audrey.  The next round of women producers came from business women, motivational speakers and authors looking for a platform that they could use to create more exposure for their business and that’s what HerTube offered.
Audrey has been an entrepreneur for over 15 years and believes that if opportunities aren’t coming to you, then create them for yourself.  95 percent of the women on the network are actresses looking for more face time to hone their craft of acting and HerTube puts them on TV every week when they release a new show because of our partnership with Roku states Audrey.
Over the past year HerTube has had some challenges one of which is monetizing all of content that is being produced on the network.  There is a lot of competition out there when you are looking for advertisers to support the network states Audrey.  We have to get our numbers up to attract advertisers and that has been a challenge for us.  We want to create revenue for the company and also help the women create income.  We partnered with an ad network that run ads on our Roku channel, but the revenue from that is extremely small, so moving forward we are have found a model that we think will work for HerTube and the women who produce shows.  We call it HerTube 2.0.  With this new model we can charge our producers a monthly subscription fee for their own channel and the producers can then in turn charge their subscribers a subscription for their channel, offer pay per view options and run advertising on their channel.  This is a great model for anyone who wants to create massive exposure and be in a position to monetize their channel at the same time.  Speakers, trainers and entertainers can charge for live events.  Filmmakers can charge for film screenings online and on TV. HerTube 2.0 offers a lot of great options and we are glad that we will be launching this new platform and our very own HerTube set-top-box on Christmas Day. What a way to start off the new year with a solid plan and platform ready to go for 2015 says Audrey.

onStage at Connecticut College presents ‘TEA FOR THREE’

NEW LONDON, Conn. – onStage at Connecticut College presents “TEA FOR THREE: Lady Bird, Pat & Betty,” a behind-the-scenes look at three influential U.S. First Ladies, on Saturday, Nov. 8, at 7:30 p.m. in Evans Hall, Cummings Arts Center.

One actress portrays all three women in the show: Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford. Elaine Bromka came up with the idea for “TEA FOR THREE” while she was starring as eight First Ladies opposite Rich Little in the PBS and stage show “The Presidents.” Audience members will recognize the Emmy-winning Bromka from numerous appearances on film, television and the stage, including “Girls,” “E.R.,” “The Sopranos,” “Law and Order,” “Playing for Time,” “The Rose Tattoo,” “Macbeth” and “Uncle Buck.”

In an interview about “TEA FOR THREE,” which she co-wrote with Eric H. Weinberger, Bromka said, “These were women of intelligence and grit who suddenly found themselves in a fishbowl. I realized I wanted to tell the story from their point of view.”

The result is a heartwarming look at the evolving role of women during challenging, dynamic moments in history. And it is for those reasons that Director of Arts Programming Rob Richter ’82 deliberately slated the “TEA FOR THREE” performance to follow the midterm elections.

“The heavy-handed campaigning that goes on during election season can make us forget that, despite outward signs in some cases, politicians and their families are human,” he said. “Elaine Bromka’s skills as an actress, plus a great script, humanizes these three iconic women who have what Pat Nixon called ‘the hardest unpaid job in the world.’”

Tickets are $18, $16 for seniors and $9 for students. For tickets and information, call 860-439-2787 or visit
