The cast of The Rise Of Dorothy Hale Rings the NASDAQ Closing Bell
October 18, 2007 - Times Square, NYC
About this Marketsite Event:
The cast of The Rise Of Dorothy Hale (Michael Badalucco, Patrick Boll, Sarita Choudhury, Laura Koffman, Mark LaMura and Sarah Wynter) rings the Closing Bell.

History has recorded that Dorothy Hale, the widow of American muralist Gardner Hale, died in New York City on October 21, 1938 after plunging sixteen stories from her apartment window at the Hampshire House on Central Park South. She was thirty-three years old. Dorothy's death was ruled a suicide.

A new play by Myra Bairstow, the story of Dorothy Hale has never really been thoroughly examined. Until now. The Rise Of Dorothy Hale explores the life and death of Dorothy Hale through the creative process of Frida Kahlo and enables the contradictions in history to stand face to face. Did the alleged suicide note that Clare Boothe Luce claims to have received even exist? Why did Harry Hopkins involve the White House and two key players of the Roosevelt Administration to handle damage control around Dorothy's death? What possible secrets did Dorothy know about Harry Hopkins and Clare Luce before she was found dead? Was Dorothy Hale's death a suicide or a murder made to look like a suicide?

Performances are Monday, Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM, with matinees Wednesday at 2PM and Saturday & Sunday at 3 PM at St Luke's Theatre (308 West 46th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues).
