Ken Cohen will be performing in The Shadow Box

Here's a note from our own Ken Cohen.  You might have missed that he is performing in this play, based on his modest reference to his involvement!

For those of you who asked, and those of you who may be interested, the Pulitzer prize-winning play The Shadow Box will run at Upstairs @ the Adrienne Theater (in Center City) from May 5 through May 21, with a preview night on May 4. The play is set in a hospice, and although it was written in the 70's, it addresses issues still crucially important today: how we deal with terminal illnesses, and the impact of chronic illness on families and caregivers.  I'm told that it was also one of the first plays on Broadway to directly feature a same-sex relationship. 

For tickets and more information, you can go to There's also a brief summary of the play on Wikipedia, at It's a beautifully written play (as a word of caution, there is occasional graphic language), and I'm proud to be a part of this production.

Thanks for your interest, and chag sameach.
