|On Saturday afternoon, Sarena Tang invited several of her friends to join her at the French Institute Alliance Francaise for a performance of “Oscar and The Pink Lady” starring the indomitable Rosemary Harris.
Ms. Harris portraying both Oscar, a ten-year-old cancer patient and Granny Pink, a candy-striper of sorts, brings to life the young patient’s friends and family. It is a luminous performance.
