Bus Trip to Broadway to see The Memory Show THE MEMORY SHOW- starring Leslie Kritzer and Catherine Cox Sunday, May 5, 2013 at 3 P.M. Duke Theater on 42nd St. New York City The Memory Show is the story of a daughter who comes home to care for her aging mother. Conflicting versions of their past collide in the darkly funny portrait of a mother, a daughter, and their inescapable relationship. The Memory Show combines evocative and powerful contemporary music with a humorous, touching and heartfelt examination of conflicting perceptions, truth, desires and memories that are inherent in familial relationships. The actors struggle to make sense of their relationship when faced with disease and hardship. The musical features a book and lyrics by Sara Cooper and music by Zach Redler. The Memory Show will include music direction by Vadim Feichtner. The mother is played by Tony award nominee Catherine Cox for Oh Coward. Other Broadway credits include Footloose, Baby, Shakespeare’s Cabaret, Barnum, Oklahoma, Whoopee, Music is and One Night Stand.

Leslie is the daughter of Allentownian Robert Kritzer.
