FIRST - I am doing my one woman show at the METROPOLITAN ROOM in NYC on the 26th of this month - July. at 7:30 in the evening (one night only) I did this show last fall in DC, got great reviews like this one: "In her solo-show How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Sing the Song, Karen Black hopscotches through her unique and ultimately enduring career. Hitting highs and a few lows, Black keeps it breezy and fun, but Black saves the pathos for the songs she memorably makes her own throughout the show- be it Goodnight Irene, Me and Bobby McGee, Sondheim's Send in the Clowns or Bowie's Time, the intelligent actress with a surprisingly strong voice is beyond committed to each number. Whether rehashing her past or interpreting musical faves, Black is a first-rate, astonishingly accessible storyteller whose show makes for a marvelous, inspiring evening. - Patrick Folliard, The Washington Blade

SECOND - I am performing the next reading of my new play "Mama at Midnight" at La Mama Theater (talk about an approriate name) August 2nd. After directing the first reading of the play at the Zephyr in Los Angeles a few months ago, the great Ernest Thompson (On Golden Pond - for which he also won the Oscar) is now helping me rewrite the play and will be directing this reading as well. There are some great reviews on my blog:
