Theater review

September 19, 2006|By J. Wynn Rousuck | J. Wynn Rousuck,sun theater critic

"I sit here now, enfolded in the warmth and love of my very large family," says actress Vivienne Shub in the role of art collector Etta Cone in The Cone Sister.

The word "family" had multiple meanings Sunday night at Everyman Theatre, where this lovely, informative one-woman show made its debut. There was Shub's own family, beginning with sister Naomi Greenberg-Slovin, who wrote the play, and also including three generations (some of whom traveled from New England). Then there was the surrogate family made up of the audience, which expressed its love with a standing ovation.

If you go The Cone Sister is being performed through Oct. 10 at Everyman Theatre, 1727 N. Charles St. $20 (most performances sold out). 410-752-2208.
