Staring Thursday and running through the weekend, one of our own will be on stage at Mainstreet Theater in Houston. Cheryl L. Kaplan will be performing “My Mother’s Medicine: XXXXOOOO.” In what’s been called a ”hilarious one-woman show,” Kaplan uses her personal diary entries and the real life letters from her mother to tell the story of a Jewish family moving from Brooklyn to Iowa, of her childhood in the Midwest.
Kaplan is the Director of Theater Outreach and Education at UTMB, where she writes, directs and produces plays and educational modules which use theater to teach about health science for the university and the community. Past productions at UTMB include The Unspeakables, Unparalleled, A Woman’s Heart, Facing the Music, and HIV/AIDS…it ain’t over. She also serves as the Texas State Representative for the American Alliance for Theatre and Education. Details are online.
