"...Blessed with the presence of Kathleen Chalfant who brings the same grace and strength here that she has brought to her best-known roles..." —Anita Gates, The New York Times "Timothy Simonson... is well cast and captures the mercurial nature of this great man." - Mari Lyn Henry, Theatrepizzazz "Kathleen Chalfant is a radiant actress and she shines here..." "...sparked an intense curiosity in me..." —Roma Torre, NY1 "Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington was wonderful. Coss has achieved an excellent depiction of two compelling characters -- dialogue, pacing, tone -- and as history! The play is all his biographer could wish for as a fitting tribute." —David Levering Lewis, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning W. E. B. Du Bois (Vol. 1 & 2) "...an engaging and deeply moving play." - Susan Hall, Berkshire Fine Arts About the Author: Playwright Clare Coss’s Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington produced by Woodie King, Jr’s New Federal Theatre in association with Castillo Theatre in 2014, starring Kathleen Chalfant and Tim Robinson, directed by Gabrielle Kurlander, was recently published by Broadway Play Publishing, Inc. Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington is Coss’ third production with Woodie King, Jr.’s New Federal Theatre. Lillian Wald, At Home on Henry Street, featured Patricia Elliot in this one-woman play at the Harry de Jur Playhouse, published by The Feminist Press. Taking My Place In Time was a co-production with New Federal Theatre and The Women’s Project. Her play, Emmett, Down in My Heart, directed by Erica Gould, will open at Castillo Theatre on April 17. Inspired by the 1955 lynching of African-American Chicago boy Emmett Till for wolf-whistling at a white woman in the Mississippi Delta, this iconic story, set in the context of white silence and responsibility, calls up our nation’s on-going struggle for justice. She is currently at work on Emmett Till, an opera, with composer Mary Watkins. Coss is a member of the League of Professional Theatre Women, Dramatists Guild, and PEN. For other plays and publications: www.ClareCoss.com About the Book: Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington captures two esteemed founders of the NAACP in a moment of crisis in 1915. Unexpectedly alone in the office, Dr. Du Bois submits his resignation, which will crash the organization. W.E.B. Dubois, African-American visionary leader and Mary Ovington, white progressive activist, reach across the color line and confront their desire for each other: they spar, reveal secrets, clash, and compete to save their vital work for justice and equality. Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington by Clare Coss Broadway Play Publishing, Inc, 2014 Paper $14.95

Stars Align to Celebrate New Book On Algonquin Hotel "The Algonquin Kid"
The Drama Book Shop, Thursday, April 2 at 6pm
Stars of Broadway and the Oak Room Gather For Book Launch for The Algonquin Kid

On Thursday, April 2, from 6-8 PM, New York's Drama Book Shop will host the launch of the new book by Michael Elihu Colby: The Algonquin Kid: Adventures Growing Up at New York's Legendary Hotel.

Published by BearManor Media, the book The Algonquin Kid covers the years Michael 's grandparents, Ben and Mary Bodne, owned the legendary Algonquin Hotel (from 1946-1987), spearheading a cultural renaissance there. Lerner and Loewe wrote My Fair Lady at the Algonquin. Marilyn Monroe flashed Mary Bodne on the corner. Bellmen scrambled to find an Oscar winner' s missing bag of marijuana. And Michael would visit his grandparents (later moving into the hotel), encountering the glittering likes of Noel Coward, Ella Fitzgerald (who sang to him at breakfast) , Angela Lansbury, and Laurence Olivier.

The book also reveals how the Bodnes turned the hotel into a haven for victims of 1950s McCarthyism and a home away from home for such Black Americans as Ella Fitzgerald, Roy Wilkins, and Maya Angelou. Amid the hotel's parade of illustrious figures (some on a meteoric rise, some in tragic decline) . Ultimately, Michael found his own place in the topsy-turvy world of the Broadway theatre and musicals.

Performing will be stars of the Algonquin's Oak Room, Steve Ross (who opened the room), Broadway's Tovah Feldshuh, and K.T. Sullivan (now head of the Mabel Mercer Foundation and Lincoln Center Cabaret Convention). Other guest stars (singing numbers from Colby shows) include Tony Sheldon (PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT), Klea Blackhurst (EVERYTHING THE TRAFFIC WILL ALLOW), Christina Bianco (FORBIDDEN BROADWAY), Jessica Grové (A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC), Michael Winther (MAMA MIA!) and Jack Urbont (Emmy winning composer). The musical director is Michael Lavine. And there will be refreshments, lots of Algonquin alumni, and book signings.

Also expected to attend are cabaret stars Julie Budd and Peggy Eason, as well as Larry Hart II (nephew of Lorenz Hart) and such Broadway luminaries (many who've appeared in Michael's musicals) as Merle Louise (SWEENEY TODD), Michael McCormick (1776), Lori Tan Chinn (TV's Orange Is the New Black) and Bethe Austin (WHOOPIE!).

The Algonquin Kid is based on the popular series originally presented on the website: www.theaterpizzazz.com.
