“THE STORY OF THE NICE WHITE LADY” by Houston Robertson
Ginger Parnes was three years old when her two older brothers sent her on stage at a Saturday matinee talent show at the Tower Theater in Miami. She sang a song…and won! Unlike many people, Ginger WOULD rather speak in public than die, so, she was thrilled when her name was drawn several times at The Moth. Better yet, this return to TIOT under the direction of Jeanne Haynes.
By day, Scott Cohen is a mild-mannered accountant in his mid-fifties. By night, he is still mild-mannered and in his fifties; but he is also a storyteller and comedian. His current project is a nostalgic and funny one-person show about his grandparents. Tonight, you’ll see an excerpt.
Fred Johnson is a jazz musician and a formerly incarcerated person. He is committed to addressing the policies that continue to dehumanize prisoners, guided by harm-reduction principles.
Houston Robertson, is an 82 year old retired human resources professional. She brings her experience as a writer, motivational speaker, and award-winning clown to her solo work. SHe’s been called a “gusty storyteller” and “an insanely expressive and inspiring spirit” — qualities that inhabit her memoir Paper Chain Confessions (available through Amazon.com). She offers “charming, irreverent, and amusing insights” in her confessional scolding of the nice white lady.
