A play of morals and ideas, set in late Victorian England, it is a study of two strong women, mother and daughter, each determined to hold to their respective world views and life choices. The story transpires over a weekend during which young Vivie Warren, freshly graduated from Cambridge after a lifetime of boarding schools and only brief family contacts, finally learns more about her mother, a woman of questionable reputation who has lavishly financed her daughter’s superior education and place in respectable society.

Marine Corps League Presents Americanism Program to Cub Scout Pack in Lower Merion t the January 16 meeting of Cub Scout Pack 581 in Lower Merion Township, the Gen. Smedley D. Butler Detachment No. 741, Marine Corps League, headquartered in Newtown Square, presented its regular Americanism program about the history of the American flag. The meeting was held at the historic building in which the Lower Merion Historical Society is headquartered. Presenters were Detachment members Jim Mulhern, Lloyd Spangler and Earle Drake. Approximately 30 parents and Cub Scouts were in attendance. Also present were Den Mother Lisa Baskin, Den Leader Scott Schwartz, and Gerald Francis, President of the Lower Merion Historical Society. The scouts asked excellent questions and were very interested in the history of the flag. The Historical Society brought an 1865 American flag to the meeting. The Cub Scouts were in awe when they learned that this flag flew 148 years ago when Abraham Lincoln was President. The Gen. Butler Marine Corps League Detachment regularly presents historically significant exhibits in local libraries and historical societies. During the past year it presented an exhibit based on Marines in the Frigate Navy. The original six frigates of the Gerald Francis, President of the LM Historical Society, and Lisa Continental Navy were designed by a local ship builder, Joshua Humphreys. In fact there Baskin, Den Mother, with the 1865 flag. is a road side marker in the Ardmore area that notes this fact. The Marine Corps League was founded in 1923 by WWI Marine hero and then Maj. Gen. and Commandant of the United States Marine Corps, John A. Lejeune. Today the League boasts of a membership in excess of 76,000. Its sponsored programs include Marines Helping Marines, the Youth Physical Fitness Program, the Young Marines of the Marine Corps League, the Veterans Service Officer Program, the Marine Corps League Auxiliary, the Toys for Tots program, the Adopt-a-Highway program, and several scholarships. U.S. Marine Corps General Smedley D. Butler was born in West Chester and lived much of his adult life in Newtown Square. He spent many of his final years lecturing throughout the country on behalf of veterans’ causes and good government. The general was one of only two U.S. Marines awarded two Medals of Honor for heroism in two distinct military actions.

The Players Club of Swarthmore Presents the Delaware County Premiere of “Grey Gardens” he Players Club continues its 102nd season (an exploration of “family” in all its permutations) with a production of the Tony Award-winning musical “Grey Gardens,” running on the theatre’s Mainstage from February 8, 2013 to February 23, 2013. With a book by Doug Wright, music by Scott Frankel, and lyrics by Michael Korie, this unique production tells the story of Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale (“Big Edie”) and her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale (“Little Edie”), who were the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. The title refers to the family’s Hamptons mansion, which becomes a character in the story as well. Big Edie Beale was the sister of Jacqueline Kennedy’s father, and came from great Preparing for “Grey Gardens” are, from left – Claudia wealth. Much to her father’s Carlsson as “Little” Edie Beale and Debbie Schiller Schrager dismay, she pursued an amaas “Big” Edie Bouvier Beale. teur singing career. In 1917 Big Edie married lawyer/financier Phelan Beale (who worked at her father’s law firm, Bouvier and Beale). The Beales separated in 1931 when Little Edie was 14, with “Big Edie” retaining the Grey Gardens house. Beale received child support, but no form of alimony. In 1946, Phelan Beale notified her of their divorce via telegram from Mexico. (Little Edie referred to it as a “fake Mexican divorce” because it was not recognized by the Catholic Church.) Upset by her increasingly eccentric behavior, her father left Big Edie only a small trust fund, which did not last very long. In the fall of 1971 and throughout 1972, the two women’s living conditions – the house was infested by fleas, inhabited by numerous cats and raccoons, deprived of running water, and filled with garbage and decay – were exposed as the result of an article in the National Enquirer and a cover story in New York Magazine after a series of inspections (which the Beales called “raids”) by the Suffolk County Health Department. With the Beale women facing eviction and the razing of their home, in the summer of 1972 Jacqueline Onassis and her sister Lee Radziwill provided the necessary funds to stabilize and repair the dilapidated house so that it would meet village codes. Albert and David Maysles became interested in their story and received permission to film a documentary about the women, which was released in 1976 to wide critical acclaim. Their direct cinema technique left the women to tell their own stories. People became fascinated how two wealthy and intelligent women wound up living in utter squalor. The film eventually achieved cult status. The 14-room Grey Gardens home (located where Lily Pond Lane meets West End Road in East Hampton, Long Island) is just as much a character in the Beale legacy – and in the musical – as any living being. It was once a physical manifestation of the trials and tribulations of the two Edith Beales. In 1979 Little Edie sold the home to Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn for $220,000 under the terms they were not to tear down the house. Little Edie told them “All it needs is a coat of paint!” Quinn recalled later that the house “was worse than the movie.” She said they found the skulls of raccoons, as well as the waste from 52 feral cats. Bradlee and Quinn restored the home, and it now hosts many parties and charity events yearly and has been featured in several architectural and home décor magazines. The musical, which opened Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons on February 10, 2006 and ran through April 30, 2006, portrays the two women’s downward slide from their original status as rich and socially polished aristocrats to their eventual largely isolated existence in a home overrun by cats and cited for repeated health code violations. However, its more central purpose is to untangle the complicated dynamics of their dysfunctional mother/daughter relationship. The first act depicts the characters in their heyday and is a speculative take on what their lives might have been like when they were younger, when Little Edie is 24 and Big Edie is 47. The second act is set 32 years later in 1973, and hews closely to the Maysles Brothers’ documentary in its portrayal of them in their later years, when Little Edie is 56 and Big Edie is 79. Director Joe Southard has been a fan of the piece since its New York debut. He and his production team have been hard at work researching everything in order to be as true to the Beale’s story as possible. When asked what drew him to the piece, Southard replied: “How could you not be fascinated by these two women; to come from so much wealth and privilege and end up living in such abysmal conditions. When I saw the show in New York, Christine Ebersole’s performance was incredibly memorable. She played Big Edie as a younger wife and mother in Act I and Little Edie as an adult in Act II. And the score is wonderful…” He has assembled a truly gifted ensemble to portray these challenging roles. Taking on the central role of Little Edie in Act II, is long-time PCS performer Claudia Carlsson. Ms. Carlsson shared her personal connections to the role: “I saw the documentary a number of years ago and found it very riveting. I read everything I could about the Beale’s and looked up articles on the internet. But the most compelling reason I am so touched by the show is that my mother was not only named Edie, she shared many of Big Edie’s qualities. She was beautiful and fun and dazzling, and sang like an angel as a young woman. Then some bad things happened and she began to live in her own world. I had about 10 years of a wonderful mother and then it was over. So this performance is for my beautiful mom. Like the song in the show, she seemed to be the ‘girl who had everything.’”

Valentine’s Day Tours at Graeme Park, Horsham lizabeth Graeme Fergusson led a life of wealth and privilege, romance and intrigue, followed by heartbreak, poverty, and sorrow. One of the most highly regarded women of her time, she was well educated, the daughter of a prominent Philadelphia physician and the granddaughter of the former Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania. She spent her summers at idyllic Graeme Park and her winters enjoying the social scene in Philadelphia. A published poet and socialite, she hosted famed literary gatherings and counted luminaries of Philadelphia’s political, social and intellectual elite amongst her closest friends and confidents. Early in life, she seemed to have it all: engaged to William Franklin, money, prestige, family connections, and success. So how did it all go so wrong for her? Left broken-hearted when Franklin married another, the untimely deaths of her parents, an ill-fated marriage to Loyalist Henry Hugh Fergusson, and the subsequent Revolutionary War were to drastically alter the course of Elizabeth’s life. Her husband’s loyalties left Elizabeth fighting to keep her ancestral home and scant few of her possessions. Her husband returned to England, branded a traitor, rumors of his infidelity swirling through Philadelphia. She alienated all but her closest friends in her attempts to find out the truth about Henry’s “indiscretions.” Financial woes forced Elizabeth out of her beautiful estate at Graeme Park to take up rooms as a boarder and then guest in someone else’s home. Her last years were spent in virtual seclusion, only one friend by her side.


Learn about Elizabeth’s loves and losses on Graeme Park’s annual Valentine’s Day Tour, featuring costumed actors portraying scenes from Elizabeth’s life in vignettes throughout the historic Keith House. Tours are on Sunday, February 10 and will run approximately every half hour between 12 noon and 3 p.m. The cost is $12/person which includes light refreshments in the Visitor’s Center. No reservations. Call 215343-0965 for info. Directions are available at Graeme Park is operated by the Friends of Graeme Park through an agreement with the Pennsylvania Historic and Museum Commission and owned by the state of Pennsylvania. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark. Built in 1722, the Keith House is the only surviving residence of a colonial Pennsylvania governor. Graeme Park is located at 859 County Line Rd., just off of Rt. 611 in Horsham. Regular operating hours are Friday - Saturday 10 a.m. - 4p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. - 4 p.m., last tour each day at 3 p.m.; admission is charged for tours of the Keith House.

C E L E B R AT E V A L E N T I N E ’ S W E E K E N D W I T H C H O C O L AT E M A K I N G Learn the Delicious History of this Treat at The Betsy Ross House hocolate holds an important spot in our nation’s early history. With a famous rebellion against tea and all things British, our founders chose hot chocolate and coffee drinks as symbols of freedom. It wasn’t long until the tasty ingredient started finding its way into many recipes, from baked goods to early chocolate bars. The rest is chocolate history! From a symbol of freedom to a Valentine’s Day symbol of love, chocolate is a treat that has endured the centuries. Celebrate this uniquely American treat this Valentine’s weekend at the Betsy Ross House, 239 Arch Street, with Colonial chocolate making demonstrations 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, February 9 and 10. A historical interpreter will demonstrate how to make chocolate using only hand tools. Using cacao beans ground by the local miller, chocolate in Colonial America was often flavored with other exotic tastes, such as chili pepper and anise, from the spice trade. Sample the tasty drink Colonists enjoyed and take home some American Heritage Chocolate, available exclusively at historic sites. The Betsy Ross House is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily; Tuesday through Sunday in January and February, and holiday Mondays, including Presidents’ Day, February 18. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for children and seniors. An optional audio guide is $7, which includes admission. Don’t miss the brand new exhibit opening February 2, “Flags to Riches: The Stories of Rebecca Franks & Betsy Ross,” which contrasts the lives of a wealthy Loyalist and a working-class Patriot in Colonial America. The Betsy Ross House is dedicated to preserving the legend of the first flag and the story of Betsy Ross, herself, and of all colonial women. The House, located at 239 Arch Street, just blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, is one of Philadelphia’s most popular historic attractions with more than 200,000 visitors annually.

January 30 – February 5, 2013

Emancipation Sweet at Neumann University r. Amanda Kemp and the Theatre for Transformation bring her original play Emancipation Sweet to the Neumann University stage on Wednesday, February 6 at 8 p.m. The story revolves around a 14-year-old boy named Emancipation Sweet. He loves basketball but hates history. He also hates his name. Every year Emancipation and his mother make a field trip to the Lincoln Memorial for a history lesson. Though usually boring, this year an encounter with a strange old bum sets Emancipation on an epic journey back in time. He travels from the 1963 March on Washington D.C.


uring the month of February, the National Constitution Center will pay tribute to the extraordinary achievements and the courage and sacrifices made by African Americans throughout history as they strived to become recognized as an integral part of “We the People.” The Center’s African American History Month Celebration will feature interactive programming designed for visitors of all ages and artifacts highlighting important moments in African American history including a rare printing of the Emancipation Proclamation, signed by President Abraham Lincoln. Visitors also can explore the significant cultural contributions of African Americans in the 1920s in the Center’s feature exhibition, “American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition.” African American History Month at the National Constitution Center and FREE admission on Sunday, February 24, 2013 are generously underwritten by PwC. Admission to the Center is also FREE on Sunday, February 3, 2013, courtesy of TD Bank. For information, call 215-409-6700 or visit


Writer/Performer Amanda Kemp brings her original play “Emancipation Sweet” to Neumann University on Wednesday, February 6 at 8 p.m. and beyond as a series of unlikely guides hurl him deeper into the past until he is whispering in the ear of Abraham Lincoln. Directed by John Rohrkemper, this play celebrates the sesquicentennial of the Emancipation Proclamation. This new touring play features Bach’s Chaconne as rendered by virtuoso violinist Michael Jamanis, African American spirituals and original music. Admission is free. Freewill offerings will be accepted at the door. The performance will be in the Fred P. Meagher Theatre in the Thomas A. Bruder, Jr. Life Center on Neumann University’s campus.

“Mrs. Warren’s Profession”

Presentations of College Admissions Workshops Offered

Continued from front page

confrontation and reckoning with the past, culminating in a climax of shocking and passionate drama. Regularly at the center of discourse on the moral, economic, and social issues of his day, George Bernard Shaw (18561950) left the world an large body of literary work, including sixty-three plays, over a dozen of which are today recognized as classics. A good many of his writings invited controversy, but “Mrs. Warren’s Profession” provoked more than its fair share. Written in 1893, the play, dealing with the often unsavory reality of women’s position in society of the time, was immediately banned from public presentation in England. Upon reaching the American stage in 1905, its premiere was literally halted in mid-performance by New York’s Police Department, who cited the entire company for disorderly conduct! The first public production in London took place in 1925, by which time its thematic content was deemed presentable. Since then the play has enjoyed many decades of revivals on both sides of the Atlantic. Performance dates are February 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 at 8 p.m.; February 3, 10, 17 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at $17 Online (no service charge), $20 At-door. (Thursday eve performances “2 for $25”). Students with valid ID $13 At-door. Groups of 15 or more are offered a reduced rate of $15.00 a ticket, paid in advance. The box office opens 45 minutes before each performance. For information call 215-247-8881; for reservations-direct call 215-247-9913. The theater is located in the heart of Chestnut Hill at 8130 Germantown Avenue. Visit for details. A “Meet the Cast and Director” Q & A session will be held following the performances on Friday, February 8. All attendees at the performance are welcome to stay and join in the discussion.

Tugboats: The Art of Dave Boone Exhibition Opens February 22

“Tugboats: The Art of Dave Boone” will be on display until August 4, 2013. Detail of one of Dave Boone’s pieces. ndependence Seaport Museum will open a new exhibit Tugboats: The Art of Dave Boone on Friday, February 22, 2013. The exhibition, located in the Museum’s 2nd floor community gallery, presents the journey of one man’s lifelong love of tugboats. Tugboats: The Art of Dave Boone is curated by Dave Boone, an award-winning artist who built two careers from a single boyhood experience with a tug. Tugboats: The Art of Dave Boone will be on display until August 4, 2013. Tugboats: The Art of Dave Boone will not only showcase his beautifully detailed artwork, but also portray the life and progression of his passion for tugboats. Boone has honed his self-taught skills to produce vivid, well-detailed watercolor paintings of contemporary and historical ships and tugboats. He continues to paint commissions for the maritime


community and his extensive knowledge and artistic ability combines to make his maritime subjects come alive. Boone, from Camden, New Jersey, knew at the young age that he would find his place in the maritime community. As a young boy he would venture along the Newton Creek in his father’s homemade rowboats and capture the river traffic. From ships to the everpresent tugboats, Boone would sketch what he saw in pencil. In 1960 Boone showed his painting for a ride on the Curtis Bay Towing Company tugboat REEDY POINT. In March, 1971, Boone started full-time employment with Curtis Bay as a dispatcher. Rising through the ranks, he was promoted to Operations Manager in 1992. After 28 years, he retired at the end of 1999. He and his wife

“GREY GARDENS” Continued from page 5

PCS newcomer Allison Gerrard will portray Young Edie in the first half, with Debbie Schiller Schrager playing Big Edie throughout the production. Now, for the other “staunch characters” (as Little Edie would say): Art Bookout takes on dual roles as Joe Kennedy, Jr. in Act I, and Jerry the handyman (who has a song sung about him) in Act II. Little Edie claimed that she and Joe Kennedy were to have been married if he hadn’t died in WWII. And she dubbed Jerry “The Marble Faun,” after a Hawthorne story about a beautiful naïve Italian boy. Former PCS president Bruce Nutting plays Major Bouvier (Big Edie’s father), Ixchel Lemus-Bromley is Jackie Kennedy and Michaela Henry is her sister Lee. Rounding out the ensemble are Paul Weagraff as George Gould Strong (Big Edie’s accompanist and social partner) and Dominic Santos as Brooks, the estate’s gardener. “Grey Gardens” has very specific – and complicated – set demands. Designer Jolene Petrowski has done a brilliant job of creating a design that transforms from the elegant home the family had in the 1940s to the dilapidated ruin it became in the 1970s. Gregory Scott Miller is lighting everything and costumers Reba Ferdman, Dot Kowal and Betsy Berwick have been hard at work finding just the right looks. Specialty costumes, make-up and hair are being provided by Randino Del Rosario and Bob Moore. Michelle Ferdinand is serving as musical director, with assistance from Pete Bretz. Additional sound design is being provided by John Tiedeck. Performances are Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. [a new start time this season], Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. PCS is offering a special deal during the middle weekend of each run this season: bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to PhilAbundance and get $1 off your ticket price. The “Meet The Artists” post-show discussion will occur following the 2 p.m. performance on Sunday, February 17. Parental guidance advised for pre-teens because of language and subject matter. The Club’s Mainstage space is a fully handicapped accessible 300-seat proscenium theatre. There is plenty of free off-street parking and the Mainstage is equipped with Assisted Listening devices. The Players Club is committed to offering audiences a quality theatrical experience; PCS may be embarking on its second century, be they are always looking to be on the cutting edge of today’s theatre scene. The Players Club of Swarthmore, an all-volunteer organization now in its 102nd season, is located at 614 Fairview Road—just off of Route 320.
