Act II Productions Presents The Glass Menagerie

Glass Men

Act II Productions presents its next show, Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie. Housed inside the Roxpac in the Investor’s Bank Theatre located at 72 Eyland Avenue in Succasunna, the show runs May 15, 16, 22, and 23rd at 8 p.m.

Directed by Richard Norman, the show features Lori Rose Osbourne, Sam Salter, Erik Gaden, and Elizabeth Allstaedt. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students under the age of 18 or students with a college ID. Purchases may be made online or at the door.

For more information call 862-219-1379 or go to http://www.acttwoproductionsnj.org

About the Show: A memory play narrated by Tom depicts his relationships with his mother, a former Southern Belle and his sister Laura, who is painfully shy and spends time arranging her glass figurines. At the request of his mother, Tom brings a gentleman caller to dinner. Tom is torn between his loyalty to his family and his desire to follow his own dream.

“The Glass Menagerie” is an American masterpiece that announced the presence of one of the greatest dramatists of the 20th Century. Tennessee Williams’ semi-autobiographical heartbreaking yet often humorous play about a young struggling poet and his tenuous relationships with his overbearing mother and his fragile sister is an emotionally charged portrait of hope. It explores themes of time, memory, how one young man must leave behind his past in order to define the artist within himself and a realization that “In memory, everything seems to happen to music.”

Local Dog Rescue Group Looking For A Very Special Home For a Very Special Dog

Wally from Coming Home Rescue 2

Press Release:

Coming Home Rescue, a 501(c)3 non-profit dog rescue organization, is looking for a foster or a permanent home for a dog who has cerebellar cortical degeneration also known as Cerebellar Ataxis. This is a genetic disease that affects a significant list of dog breeds and causes the dog to have an odd gait and trouble navigating as well as occasionally falling on his side. In some breeds there is a slow degradation of their ability to function while in others it can be quite rapid. Unfortunately, there is no treatment or cure for the illness.

Coming Home Rescue had Wally examined by a neurologist who indicated that Wally is not in pain or uncomfortable and may very well live a normal life span.

Wally from Coming Home Rescue

Wally is a chocolate and white five-year-old, American Staffordshire mix,  that is very people focused. Wally has been through obedience training and knows to do his business outside. He prefers to be your one and only, but might do fine with another mellow dog. Due to his condition, it’s best that he is in a house with older children and adults. He loves to cuddle, play with his toys and rides well in the car. Wally is full of energy and would love a big yard to run in or go on daily walks. Wally is neutered, up-to-date on his shots and microchipped.  Anyone interested in Wally, can fill out a foster or adoption application online at www.cominghomerescue.org or call 1-888-405-7221 or email info@cominghomerescue.org to schedule a meet and greet.

Diner Round Up – The Morristown Diner

photo 1(1)

Firstly, I want to preface that I went to this diner in February, which would explain the snow coming down in full force. Now for the review…

I went to Morristown diner while I was in Morristown. The diner is in a great location in downtown Morristown where there are lots of stores, restaurants, night life, museums and more. I went on a day while it was snowing, so I didn’t stay too long in the area…but I’m glad I at least got to check out the diner while I was there.

When you walk in they have a cute, classic NJ diner counter which gave me the warm fuzzies.

photo 5

I posted on Facebook when I was there and got a mixed response from people who have been there. I personally loved it.

Their menu has a lot to choose from, including Greek specialties, fat sandwiches and Mexican food. I decided on getting a chicken fajita because I was hungry and it sounded like a lot of food. Oh boy…was it!

photo 3

I also want to say, and this is a bold statement, but this might have been one of the best fajitas I have ever had. I was literally licking my plate it was so good.

Make sure you get dessert on your way out. It looked delicious! They even had Minion cupcakes…
