Together wherever they go...
Alice Ripley and Emily Skinner, literally joined at the hip in Broadway's Side Show, will again stick together for one night only, May 5, as a benefit for the small New York Theatre troupe, The Genesius Guild.
Ripley and Skinner, who starred in the Henry Krieger musical about Siamese Twins in (and later out of) a freak show, will be honored by the Guild with a "Genie Award." Other winners are Disney's The Lion King and The Drama Dept., producers of As Bees In Honey Drown and June Moon. Genie Awards are given to artists and companies that create "groundbreaking" theatre.
Tickets to the Awards, which will feature a musical performance called "Heart Knocks," run $50-$125 and are available by calling (212) 946-5625. The event happens at the Triad, 158 West 72nd St.
The Genesius Guild (no, not geniuses; genesius), is a fledgling theatre company that concentrates on developing new works for the theatre through workshops and staged readings. The Guild has two annual fund raisers and a cabaret series. -- By David Lefkowitz
