My friend and former neighbor, Lindsay Luppino, who recently starred in the 10th Anniversary National Tour of Footloose, is now performing as part of the ensemble in a summer production of "Singing in the Rain!"
For those of you in the southern Maine area, you can see Lindsay now through September 12th at John Lane’s Ogunquit Playhouse (ticket info here). My favorite rising star recently got an agent and is lovin’ her current gig, as it is her first Actors Equity theatre. Here’s a trailer for the show; look for a tall brunette with a bob in the chorus line!
Once upon a time, when Len and I lived in our old house, a new family moved in next door.
Along with her parents, older brother and two barky dogs, Lindsay, age 6, soon became a special friend. Both of us loved Eloise; it had been one of her mother’s favorite books, too, so the enthusiasm for the little Plaza Hotel minx ran in the family. Lindsay even began calling me Eloise, which I didn’t mind at all. It was like a secret handshake, a code, a bonding thing. We had fun tickling the ivories, playing with the Paddingtons, and donning elf shoes for a Christmas party.
