Award-winning Oregon Coast actor Liz Cole will return to Manzanita’s Hoffman Center for the Arts on Wednesday, April 17, for the latest installment of her “Story Time for Grown-Ups.”
Titled “Marriage and Other Lapses of Judgment,” this latest installment will include stories and poems about life’s most complex rite of passage, using material both thoughtful and humorous.
“Married or not, you’ll enjoy this Hoffman Center evening,” Cole said.
Cole has had a long acting career on the professional stage and has also made TV guest-star appearances on “Seinfeld,” “ER,” “Star Trek,” “The Practice,” “Judging Amy,” “Las Vegas” and many others.
She originated the leading role in Margaret Edson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “Wit” in 1995, for which she received the LA Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Outstanding Performance. She also tours with “The Wisdom of Wit,” her solo version of the play, and gives performances related to medical ethics and communication at healthcare venues across the country.
Cole has performed locally for many benefit events and also appeared in the original solo play “Lost Pioneer,” which she developed with Mark Beach and Portland playwright Ellen West.
The April 17 show will start at 7 pm at 594 Laneda Avenue. Admission is by suggested donation of $10, and all proceeds will go to support Hoffman center programs. Refreshments will be served.
