There are times in life that are so challenging, the only thing left to do is laugh. That's what Erica Herd did when her Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. She dug deep to find the humor -- then she wrote a play about it, and set the whole thing to a smoky blues score. The result is Alzheimer's Blues, a play about life and love, told with great affection and humor. Erica's mother, Katherine Lind, was one of the most talented actresses working the New York stage during the '50s, '60s and '70s. But Alzheimer's deprived her not only of her memories but also her home, and Erica had to step in to manage things. Alzheimer's Blues is a surreal look into the lives and minds of Erica and her mom, guaranteed to make you ponder the power of love. Learn More

Great time! Not only a great actor able to make one feel as if experiencing the moment but His timing was awesome. Just when I was engaged and ready to cry.....he came out with something funny! Very comfortable environment, dress casual, every seat is a great seat.
The wine and chips at the end went great with meeting and speaking with Mr. Alvarez.
