Lilith & Eve, The Original Rogue Women, in Genesisters

by Taylor Harris




I was a scrawny, twelve-year-old kid when I first met Frank Moffett Mosier in his acting course at the studio, Northwest Dance. I quickly learned this was not your typical children’s acting class.

Recycled Virgin Shows Up to Rogue On!

by Houston Robertson



Victory for the Recycled Virgin, a solo show written and performed by Houston Robertson, is full of surprises – including the age of the performer. Houston grabs you by the heart with all her 78 years as she romps through the fearless and funny episodes of her delayed adolescence. Her opening line “I’ve come here to tell the truth” is the truth. The show radiates with honesty and wit. This solo performance piece was developed with and directed by Mark Kenward, an icon of solo performance in the San Francisco Bay area. He says of Houston, “Houston performs with an engaging presence and riveting energy. She is a force to be enjoyed.”
