Tag Archives: 4000 Miles
Sometimes, the worthwhile reason to see Palm Beach Dramaworks’ mounting of 4000 Miles, the satisfying treat is watching the vibrating depiction by up-and-comer Gabriell Salgado of a deeply troubled young man and the brilliant portrait by Patricia Conolly of a 91-year-old grandmother staying vital and engaged while struggling with the debilitating effects of old age.
Patricia Conolly is one of the most prolific actresses you’ve likely never heard of. But you’ve very likely seen her: 3 times as Blanche, 1 as Stella, 2 as Hedda, 16 Shakespearean heroines. This month Conolly will play the 91-year-old grandmother trying to connect with her grandson in Palm Beach Dramaworks’ 4000 Miles.
