String of Pearls


In this alternately poignant and irreverently funny musical two-hander, an aged mother and her adult daughter clash over independence and the ravages of old age. Both must learn to let go and accept each other to connect meaningfully before it is too late. Set simply in Pearl’s shrinking world, the show resonates with Baby Boomers who have watched their mothers grow old and fade away, one way or another. Hummable songs reminiscent of the style of Golden Age musicals evoke laughter and tears. 

“I recommend it for its warmth, for its heart, and for some stand-out musical numbers”
