The Gym at Judson

“Director Janice L. Goldberg keeps the performance as visually interesting as it is emotionally and spiritually significant. Mr. Hoehler’s movements are precise, perfectly timed, and never extraneous…This stunning performance piece should be on every serious theatre-goers must see list. ”

     Once In… Never Out! (the play) 

 Coming to Richmond, VA  October 2017

 “Director Janice Goldberg has crafted a precise and textured ode to mother/daughter relationships. The physicality of the blocking was economical and executed with glorious finesse. She has created a truly classy production that enthralls the audience.”       


          Based on a true story of a Bletchley Park WWII code breaker who misses her destiny but who never loses her strength of character.

Set in 1938 Chicago, Rose Colored Glass takes place in the back rooms of Lady O’Riley’s Pub and Rose Fleishman’s delicatessen. Their disparate worlds, separated by much more than the alley between their kitchens, are about to collide.

Peg O’Riley, the 13-year-old granddaughter of Lady, has grown determined that these two mistrustful widows will become friends, but it is not until they become involved in the same cause that their friendship has a chance to bloom. In a series of stunning flashbacks, Peg, now older, remembers the moving story of how Lady and Rose formed a united front to fight American apathy in an attempt to bring Rose’s nephew out of Europe before the war.
