Lakeside Audience Savor Thornton Wilder Classic

‘OUR TOWN’ STAGED THIS MONTH

Lakeside Audience Savors

Thornton Wilder Classic

On ladders (signifying the upstairs of their next-door homes), future sweethearts George Gibbs (Marcus Hudson) and Emily Webb (Maria Noto) kindle their relationship, chatting window to window. The scene last evening is from Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town,” being performed this month by the GlimmerGlobe Theatre at the Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheatre on Otsego Lake behind The Fenimore Art Museum. The seated girl is George’s sister Rebecca (Natalie Davis). In the foreground is Constable Warren (Tom Heitz) on his rounds. Performances are at 7 p.m. tomorrow, and subsequent Wednesdays and Fridays, Aug. 21, 23 and 29. In the play, the four are looking at the moon. And, as if on cue, the moon rose over Cooperstown.
