Walk Two Moons on Stage

The Adventure Stage in Chicago has adapted Walk Two Moons for the stage, opening today for students and on Saturday for the public.  I'll be there on Saturday.  Can't wait!

It is an odd experience to see your words acted out by others and to see and hear the audience's reactions. It's as if you are viewing someone else's creation - which, in part, it is - but a creation that is so intimate, so familiar, that you feel disoriented, but in a good way.

There is more information here:

Adventure Stage: Walk Two Moons

If you're in Chicago, go see it. It runs November 5 - December 3.  Ticket information at above link.

Huzza, huzza --


  1. How exciting is that! Chicago here you come... I can't wait to read your review! I hope they do a video of it for you.

  2. Congratulations, Sharon. A "huzza" sort of weekend for sure. . .

  3. Do you know if it will be touring? I would love to go!

  4. Hey SC, what an exciting time for you!

  5. Liz, no not touring as far as I know.

  6. I hope you have a lovely time, Sharon! How exciting! I only wish it were coming just a bit more north for performances.

  7. How interesting to see a mention of Ella's Deli in Walk Two Moons. Did you go there as a child? If so, was the the merry-go-round going at the time? My granddaughters love Ella's in Madison. That is one of their favorite "treat places."

    I just finished the chapter about Grams and the water moccasin in S.D. That brings back memories of my family's summertime visits to see my grandmother in Missouri. I remember the big water moccasins sunning on the rocks near the river. My mother did not speak highly of them. As a young girl, she lived near Black River and was consistently cautioned about the poisonous snakes there.
