Tickets are scarce, but there are still a few partial-view seats available for the final weekend of Rosemary Prinz in Last Lists of My Mad Mother at Hartford, CT's TheaterWorks. The show began previews Jan. 16 and opened Jan. 30 for a run through Feb. 22 -- a week past the previously announced Feb. 15 close.
Julie Jensen's drama looks at the effect of Alzheimer's disease on a mother-daughter relationship. First ioned by the Mark Taper Forum, Mother has had several workshops, but TheatreWorks' staging is its official world premiere.
Prinz's other credits include A Delicate Balance at Virginia Stage, the national tour of Driving Miss Daisy, and a role in Off-Broadway's Tales Of The Last Formicans. Also in the cast are Jayne Houdyshell and Valerie Wright. Steve Campo, TheatreWorks' artistic director, directs.
Designing the show are Deborah Constantine (lighting), Margaret Carbonneau (costumes) and Michael Schweikardt (set).
* Also on tap for the TheatreWorks season:
March 27-April 26: Cloud Tectonics by Jose Rivera. A romance that looks at the mysterious, chaotic connections between people.
May 29-June 28: Full Gallop by Mark Hampton and Mary Louise Wilson. A big Off-Broadway hit, Full Gallop looks at the scattered but absolutely joyous personality of fashion editor Diana Vreeland.
July 24-Aug. 30: Paul Robeson by Philip Hayes Dean. Also a one person show, this bio covers the life of Robeson, a legendary athlete, singer and famous personality -- back when African-Americans had little opportunity to be any of the three.
