Erma Bombeck: At Wit’s End with Nancy Rothman
Sunday May 8, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
A special treat for moms of all ages on Mother’s Day: actor and educator Nancy Rothman will perform as columnist and Queen of domestic humor, Erma Bombeck, in excerpts from the play Erma Bombeck: At Wit’s End by Alison and Margaret Engel.
Space is limited. To register, email [email protected] by Friday, May 6 at 6:30pm.
Erma Bombeck’s observations, popular in the ’70s and ’80s, took familiar but trying situations like childcare, checkout lines and house cleaning, and made them funny. For example, “Never go to a doctor whose plants have died.” “Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved away the dessert cart.” “Cats invented self-esteem.”
Nancy Rothman is well known in our area through her many performances as actor and storyteller and leader of workshops for public schools and arts organizations, and as a private coach. She has over thirty years’ experience performing regionally, in New York City, as well as internationally.
The event will take place in the garden behind the Library, or in the case of inclement weather, at the North Chatham United Methodist Church at 4274 Route 203.
This project is made possible with funds from the Restart NY Regrants, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered in Columbia County by CREATE Council on the Arts.
