Marlena's 50th Birthday Bash
In June of 1998, Marlena threw a party to honor her 50th birthday and the rite of passage it represented. She threw a party to end all parties, including a "boomitzvah" honoring other "baby boomers" attending. Also, with the collaboration of Rita Abrams and featuring a seasoned professional cast, she wrote a show that parallels five decades of major historical events in relationship to her true life experiences.
