Since I just paid homage to "The Bathrooms are Coming!", I decided to pay my respects to "The Last Sweet Days of Issac".
My brother Jon and I found this delightful album at the Martha's Vineyard dump in 1992. We took it home and decided we should call it's creator, Gretchen Cryer. We figured she still lived in New York and we were right. Within minutes of finding this gem we were on the phone with her the maker of this classic 1970 Broadway creation.
Thrilled that I was speaking to THE Gretchen Cryer, I promised her we would put on the play. And guess what, we did!
"The Last Sweet Days of Issac" was last performed by our band , The Diarrhea Roses on Martha's Vineyard in 1992. It was a huge success, but for some reason after months of hard work we only ran the show for 2 nights, go figure!
