Victorian Wedding of Mary & Jonan Coward; The Gospel According to Josh

imageThis weekend I am going to be a guest at The Victorian Tea Wedding at Maple Grove Cemetery. My husband, Ian, is portraying Jacob Riis as best man. and my best galpal, Amanda Doria is Elizabeth Riis as matron of honor. So there will be a toast and singing and celebration. The bride and groom, Mary and Jonan Coward, were separated during the Civil War and didn’t reunite until 50 years later. Friends of Maple Grove Cemetery is giving them, who are buried side by side, the wedding they never got to have as teenagers.

Very cool!

Planet Connections opens this week. If you follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Facebook or are part of the Facebook Group page, then you’ll be reading all about about the shows that are going up.

Check out the listings to the right and for more info.

See you at the show!


Josh Rivedal returns to New York City with a limited run of his show. I promoted his book last summer and am excited about seeing his one man show.

There’s a group of us attending opening night so I’d love for you to join us. Send me an email at for more info.

From The Maury Povich Show to Huffington Post columnist, the critically acclaimed show returns for a limited engagement.
Tortured by his thoughts, Josh finds himself standing on the ledge of a 4th floor window, contemplating jumping out to end it all; in a moment of truth, he must reach out to the only person who can help him before it’s too late. Featuring cameos by Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr., and Elvis; The Gospel According to Josh is a comedic and poignant true-to-life tale of love, loss, struggle, and survival. It’s a gospel account of one young man’s passage into manhood:  his 28-year Gentile bar mitzvah.

A journey through depression and coming out the other side…

FRIDAY, MAY 16 at 7PM,
