News   On Becoming, with Catherine Wolf, to Play Cherry Lane Theatre in September
The Colleagues Theatre Company will present actress/writer Catherine Wolf in her new one-woman show, On Becoming, Sept. 23-26 at Off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre.

Jack Gindi will direct the play with music with musical direction by Paul Trueblood and lighting by Marcia Madeira.

On Becoming, according to press notes, is "Catherine's voyage, through songs and stories, of growing up surrounded by very colorful, famous and talented personalities. Catherine's role models were her Grandmother Lea Luboshutz, a violinist, who had concertized all over Europe and was brought to America by Sol Hurok; her Great Uncle and Aunt, Pierre Luboshutz and Genia Nemenoff, who were world famous Duo Pianists, and her illustrious Uncle Boris Goldovsky, who for 30 years was heard on the radio every Saturday, discussing the operas during the intermissions of the Metropolitan Opera Broadcast. In this one woman show Catherine brings to life this group of exciting and gifted individuals."

In a statement Wolf said, "At the age of six I realized I'd never be the child prodigy my Grandmother had been. But then I was taken to see the great Kitty Carlisle Hart in Lady in the Dark and my life was changed forever. I decided to be an actress."

Wolf played Jennifer Connolly's mother in the Oscar-nominated film "Little Children" and appeared in "What's Your Sign." She has been seen on Broadway in An Inspector Calls, Otherwise Engaged and The Innocents.

Show times are Sept. 23-26 at 8 PM with a 3 PM matinee on Sept. 26. Tickets at $22.50 will be available through TeleCharge.com beginning Aug. 24. For additional information go to www.catherinewolf.com.
