“Ivy Rowe” inaugurates CRT’s new One Night Stands

GREENE – On Monday, July 25, “Ivy Rowe,” the play adapted and performed over 800 times nationally by Barbara Bates Smith from the novel ”Fair and Tender Ladies,” will be presented by Chenango River Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Musical accompaniment is by Jeff Sebens. This show is the first of a new series of one night performances featuring guest artists at the area’s fully professional, non-profit theatre company.



Noted for her Off-Broadway performance of “Ivy Rowe,” recounting the passionate life of a spunky mountain woman, Barbara’s 20-year touring of this one-person show has included the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The Village Voice said of the New York production: “A lifetime’s worth of sass, whoop, hurt, and reflection.” WOR Radio commented: “We are captivated and enthralled” and Variety simply said: “Both funny and heartbreaking.”
