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

This was my first exposure to Frank Blocker (and the Stage Left Theater) and boy, what a thrill! I loved watching him navigate through 17 characters, many of whom I was rooting for. His narration skillfully invited the audience into the mystery of the Mississippi night, with uproarious results. He is taking this play to Hollywood; don't miss your chance to see it when it gets back to NYC.
