Theater Professor’s “Lady with All the Answers” Reopens in Scranton

Barb Blackledge, professor of acting and directing in the IUP Department of Theater and Dance, is the lone actor in The Lady with All the Answers. The play, by David Rambo, is running in November 2010 at the Electric Theatre Company (ETC), the only Actors' Equity company in Scranton, Pa.

Her realization of the real-life Eppie Lederer (better known as advice columnist Ann Landers) is a three-week return engagement of the acclaimed role Blackledge created at ETC during her sabbatical last April. Directed by Mary Ethel Schmidt, this engaging production uses the audience as a full partner in the evening’s roller coaster of a ride through laughter and tears.
