Grace and Glorie

By Tom Zigler

Grace and Glorie returns to One Thirty Productions by popular demand. Grace and Glorie is a heartwarming story of two women from very different worlds. Grace, a cantankerous woman of sixty years plus plans to live out her life high in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the little cabin she calls home. The old stove smokes, there is no phone and there are chickens on the front porch. When Grace breaks her hip, the local hospice sends Gloria a social worker and volunteer to “help” Grace. There are laughs and a few tears as these women come to know each other and become good friends.

Performances: March 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24, 25.

Marty Van Kleeck is nothing less than astonishing in this touching, authentic, demanding performance…. She brings nuance, meticulous focus and joie de vivre to Lady Bird, Pat and Betty, seemingly without effort.

The job of first lady is truly a demanding long-running show. The full house at the show I saw on Thursday afternoon stood and cheered for Van Kleeck’s performance. I think audiences also cheer for the dynamic women she celebrates

Marty Van Kleeck is nothing less than astonishing in this touching, authentic, demanding performance. She must shift gears three times, adopting the mannerisms and quirks (not to mention dialects) of three famous, original ladies
Christopher Soden Sharp Critic
Van Kleeck never flubs her delivery of a good story… The full house at the show I saw on Thursday afternoon stood and cheered for Van Kleeck’s performance. I think audiences also cheer for the dynamic women she celebrates.
