The University of Maryland School of Law/ABA will have a screening of ‘The Response’ in Chicago this Friday, July 31st, 2009. The screening will be at the Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State Street at 3 p.m.

The University of Maryland School of Law’s acclaimed drama takes viewers inside the U.S. military tribunals in Guantanamo, Cuba. The film, winner of the 2009 American Bar Association’s prestigious Silver Gavel Award for public education through film, stars Kate Mulgrew, Peter Riegert, and Aasif Mandvi.

Star Trek:Voyager Scripts up for auction!

Hello all!

I previously posted about Kate’s Star Trek: Voyager scripts which she had donated to raise funds for the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. I am now pleased to announce that two of the scripts (Distant Origin & Basics Part I) are up for bid on eBay! Here’s your chance to own a Voyager script used by Kate, with handwritten notes. Both of these scripts were personally signed by Kate Mulgrew and also include a letter of authenticity signed by Kate. Descriptions of the scripts are below with links to the eBay auctions. Payment is by PayPal and they do ship worldwide, as I know Kate has many fans outside the US.

If you have any questions you can contact the seller (Stella Adler Studio of Acting) through eBay or if it’s a general question let me know and I’ll try to get an answer for you.

Best of luck to everyone who bids!  I know how much Kate appreciates your support.

Kate Mulgrew’s Voyager Scripts on eBay

As many of you know, Stella Adler was an integral part of Kate Mulgrew’s education and evolution as an actor, and she has often said that Ms. Adler was an inspired and inspiring teacher, a treasured mentor, and a friend.  Kate is a proud and active member of the board of directors of The Stella Adler Studio of Acting, – http://www.stellaadler.com/ – whose mission statement perfectly states their intention:

The Studio’s mission is to create an environment with the purpose of nurturing theatre artists who value humanity, their own and others, as their first and most precious priority while providing art and education to the greater community.

With that in mind, I am pleased to announce that Kate has donated several of her own Star Trek: Voyager scripts containing her notes, shooting schedules, etc. to the Stella Adler Studio of Acting to be used as a fundraising tool in support of their various projects and programs.  These scripts will be up for auction on eBay in the coming weeks.

I will send out an update as soon as the first auctions go live and keep you updated as more scripts are added.

Best of luck to everyone who bids!  I know how much Kate appreciates your support.

Thanks!

Early review of ‘Mercy’

Here’s the link to a review of Mercy by the Futon Critic:

http://thefutoncritic.com/rant.aspx?id=20090707_mercy

Take note the copy they saw wasn’t official so the pilot that eventually gets on the air could change from what they reviewed.

Still the show sounds interesting and I suspect most of us are going to tune in, at least initially, for one reason. 🙂 It will be fun to see Kate on TV again!
