Happy birthday, John Singer Sargent! Sargent and Isabella were close friends from their introduction in 1886 until her death in 1924. Sargent sometimes used the Gothic Room as a studio and Gardner ultimately owned over 60 works by Sargent (who in turn painted her three times!). #OnThisDay #JohnSingerSargent Image: John Singer Sargent (1856 - 1925), El Jaleo, 1882, oil on canvas.

"The Globe and WBUR went so far as to name Mala as one of the best plays of 2016...Lopez sees the play as 'a record of my failures as a caregiver. There’s a mythology around this. We think we will be the perfect daughters and fulfill our aging parents’ needs with grace and courage. In fact, I failed over and over again in ways that are hilarious, dramatic, and sometimes even horrible. It’s quite a shift when you become the parent and your parent becomes the child. That’s what this play tries to capture.'" Huntington Theatre Company's Mala is at the Calderwood Pavilon at the BCA until February 4!

    Melinda Lopez' "Mala," About Caring For Aging Parents, Returns To The Stage
    "The sandwich generation" refers to those individuals who serve as parents to their children and caregivers to their aging parents. In today's world, where people tend to have children later, there are more and more of us. Playwright and performer Melinda Lopez was one of them.
