Join us for a dramatic reading of the 2022 Stanley Drama Award-winning play, "Marilyn, Mom and Me" by Luke Yankee, directed by Mickey Tennenbaum.
Current junior performance major Mackenzie Quinn Ross will be playing Marilyn Monroe. Also in the reading cast will be adjunct professor Joey Donnelly, who will play the role of Luke Yankee; adjunct faculty member Michael Pinto as Arthur Miller; Staten Island arts stalwart Jeannine Otis as Rosetta/ Ella Fitzgerald, and Karen O'Donnell Tennenbaum reading the role of Eileen Heckert.
The Stanley Drama Award was established in 1957 by Mrs. Alma Timolat Stanley in conjunction with the Stanley-Timolat Foundation. The national competition is administered by the Wagner College Theatre, with past judges including such notables as playwrights Edward Albee and Paul Zindel, actresses Geraldine Page and Kim Stanley, and producer David Susskind. Past winners, which were chosen for this award before they were professionally produced, have included such groundbreaking works as “Ceremonies in Dark Old Men” by Lonne Elder III and “Rent” by Jonathan Larson.
