Nora's Playhouse

United Solo nomination for Kathleen Chalfant!

Posted by in Awards, Productions

Congratulations to Kathleen Chalfant on her 2016 United Solo Special Award nomination for her outstanding solo performance as Rose Kennedy in Nora’s Playhouse’s world premiere production of Laurence Leamer’s Rose! Brava!!

Kathleen Chalfant’s spellbinding portrayal of Rose Kennedy, the mother of John F. Kennedy, is a study of poise that masks despair in the face of trial. In Laurence Leamer’s “Rose,” Ms. Chalfant created a devastating performance as a woman claiming her role in a family of flawed, ambitious men at the foreground of history.
