"Mom's Gift" - comedy play @ Lonny Chapman Theater, Burbank

Surprise!  A comedy, something light for the holidays instead of the usual dark and mysterious plays I pick.

Mom's been dead for 11 months when she shows up at her husband's birthday party as a ghost on a mission in Phil Olson's world premiere comedy Mom's Gift. To earn her wings, she has to accomplish a task. But what that task is, she still has to figure out. Things get even funnier when it turns out that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her daughter, who has been ordered by the court to be with Dad on his birthday as part of her anger management program. Over the course of the night, the family's secrets slip out -- including one that surprises even the ghost herself.

It's getting good reviews on Goldstar -

    Hi ladies, so sorry for not being able to join you for dinner. I couldn't find parking & didn't want to be late for my next event. But I had a wonderful time, and it was nice to have met some new MSK friends. The play was fantastic! A great recommendation, Carol! Hope to see you all again soon! Happy holidays!

      Hi Julia - sorry dinner didn't work out, parking can be crazy there - for future reference, if you wait at the entrance of the parking lot, the attendant directs you, and it's usually no more than 5-6 minutes to wait - I drove a couple of blocks up then decided to wait. It was great to meet you, glad you enjoyed the play, looking forward to seeing you at another event. Enjoy the holidays!

    I apologize, but my day has gotten overbooked tomorrow, I have people coming to meet the kittens I am fostering, so I will only be able to make the play, no lunch or dinner, but if others want to throw out some suggestions (or perhaps make a decision after the play, re early dinner), please do.

    I'd be interested in joining you for lunch (before the play).

    Theoretically we have until Sunday morning to cancel the tickets but I don't want to take a chance and have them cancel on me like that last time, so let's say by noon Friday, ok?

    Hi Carol. Is there a deadline for buying tickets?

    Maybe. . . . .

    We can check into some local places for lunch before the play, or an early dinner after the play. Let me know if you are interested, which you prefer, and if you have any suggestions for a restaurant.
