Auntie Kathleen tweets: "So excited to see my niece in her NYC theatrical debut this weekend! Emma Rose Kraus - break a leg!"
Theater: La MaMa theater company in Manhattan
An initial review:
''I loved the play and very timely, what with all the extreme weather we have been having worldwide. It's in the headlines every day!. Extreme Whether poses a bitter debate over the future of the Earth, this little planet falling through space, but it also becomes a meditation on the sublime in nature. Written in a mix of prose and poetry, with invective, humor and a full musical score, Extreme Whether sets the battle over human-made global warming within a single American family as a challenge to the family at this moment of climate crisis. A major climate scientist, his colleague and lover, an Arctic scientist, wage fierce battle with his twin sister, a PR operative for the energy industry, and her husband, a lobbyist, over scientific truth and an inherited wilderness estate. His wise-child daughter and her side-kick named ''Uncle'' work to protect the natural world and sabotage its abusers.''
GO SEE THIS PLAY IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY SEEN IT. An 18-day run in NYC. Must-see!
