In one of the more unusual program lineups in recent memory, Loni Anderson ("WKRP in Cincinnati"), Robert Foxworth ("Falcon Crest"), Marilu Henner ("Taxi") and NPR host Diane Rehm will take the stage at Clowes Hall on Nov. 14 to read the first act of Trish Vradenburg's play "Surviving Grace." Locals including Anne Ryder will also be on the bill.
Vradenburg, a former writer for such TV shows as "Designing Women" and "Family Ties," has become a leading advocate for Alzheimer's research. The play, which promises to mix humor with its inherent drama, is based on her experience as a caregiver for her mother. It's being co-presented by USAgainstAlzheimer's (which Vradenburg co-founded) and Eli Lilly and Co.
The event includes a reception with the cast. Details here.
