“Grandma Rose and Annie Lanzillotto performing at The Arthur Ave Retail Market in the Bronx” 1996
Performing with my grandmother was some of my best performance memories. She was unpredictable, a true improviser, like in the Commedia dell’Arte tradition. She was ninety-six when I got her on stage. What blessed times. The best ever. I recommend it to all of you. Perform with your Grandma.
