Manchester - posted Jan, 18 2013
The Little Theatre of Manchester, celebrating its 53rd season at historic Cheney Hall, the oldest operating theater in Connecticut, presents two special events. Lunchtime Lecture on Jan. 23 at noon is entitled “Into the Sixties: Edward Albee on Broadway.” David Garnes will discuss the tremendous stir "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" caused when it roared into the Billy Rose Theater in NYC on Oct. 13, 1962. Bring your lunch, coffee provided. On Feb. 3 at 2 p.m., celebrate the start of Black History Month, with the screening of “Justice is a Black Woman – The Life and Work of Constance Baker Motley.” Motley’s work on behalf of justice and equality changed American society forever. From humble beginnings in New Haven, Conn., she became a lawyer, a New York senator, Manhattan Borough President, and served as a federal judge. Narrated by Juan Williams, this film's writer is LTM member Susan E. Bailey and the director is her husband Michael Calia. It was produced by Quinnipiac University. Both events are free, but donations will be accepted. Little Theatre of Manchester at Cheney Hall is located at 177 Hartford Road, Manchester. The box office can be contacted at 860-647-9824 and is open Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Information can also be found at www.cheneyhall.org and on Facebook at Cheney Hall and at Little Theatre of Manchester, Inc.
