This outrageously funny and irresistible one-man play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises – a struggling L.A. actor takes a job working in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu, California basement – makes for some delicious wit and insight on the solitude of celebrity, the love-hate attraction between gay men and divas, and the melancholy that lurks beneath the narcissism. Written by Jonathan Tolins. Directed by Cathy Lee-Visscher.

October 7-9, 14-16, 21-23, 2022
Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees at 2:00pm.

Benefit for Arts Education in Hudson Valley Benefits and Galas

Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty and the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center will host a benefit Oct. 9 to raise funds for arts education programs benefiting more than 1,000 Hudson Valley public school students in grades K-12.

Guests will enjoy an unforgettable evening in a magnificent setting that will transport them to another era and will have the opportunity to bid on several auction items, including original art and a tour to preview priceless works of art at Sotheby’s auction house in New York.

Speakers will include Farris Wahbeh, the Benjamin and Irma Weiss Director of Research Resources at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and Phil Grabsky, an award-winning British documentary filmmaker and director who will debut an exclusive clip of “Hopper: An American Love Story,” a film that examines Hopper’s art, life and relationships. The film aims to bring to life one of America’s most influential and enigmatic artists, from his early career to his critical and commercial acclaim. Rothko, Banksy, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch and even The Simpsons have all been influenced by the unique way Hopper captured American life.

Now in its seventh year, the benefit will be held at Treetops, a 19th century Victorian estate in Sparkill, New York, that has served as a backdrop to many celebrity events playing host to Hollywood stars including Liza Minnelli, Joan Rivers, Helen Hayes, Joan Collins, Ginger Rogers and Brooke Shields. In recent years it was the weekend retreat of the late Arlene Dahl a screen actress from the Golden Age of Hollywood, and her husband, Marc Rosen, an award-winning perfume bottle designer.

The event will run from 4 p.m. –7 p.m. at 4 Deer Run, Sparkill, located off Rockland Road near Tallman State Park. For more information, visit www.edwardhopperhouse.org/artseducation-ellissothebys-2022.html. Donations can be made at www.edwardhopperhouse.org/donate.html


In recognition of 100 years of continuous congregational activity, the celebration will include Chai on Music with the Saints of Swing, tasty food from Big Cheese in Rosendale, historical displays and tours of our beautiful sanctuary which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This event is FREE and open to the public.
