“Age doesn’t matter, unless you’re cheese.”
– Billie Burke

“Who’s Counting: A Toast To Ageless Women” – Marilyn Campbell leads this New Year’s tribute to singular women: Second Wave Feminists, Grandmothers and Feisty Survivors to whom “age” is only a word. Campbell toasts Madame Clichot and Elaine Stritch. Nicole Hollander toasts Sara Paretsky. Lois Barr toasts Las Madres de Plaza del Mayo. Ellen Stone Belic toasts the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. Cecilie O’Reilly and Maya Friedler perform from Annie Evans’ “Flappers”. Friedler gives final commentary. “Who’s Counting” features pithy quotes, poetry, comedy and musical selections from Broadway, jazz, folk and film repertoire.
