The result of tremendous love
I am currently working on Mia Fazio Truxaw's autobiography. This film is the culmination of years of research, a story about storytellers written by a tremendous storyteller. The cast--most of them who knew Mia before ALZ stole her words--worked instinctively together giving their talent and love to the work. I can't say enough about all of them but want to mention a few of them.
Lydia is an amazing artist who has participated in various productions of the story, playing almost every character from one rehearsal to the next performance --always with tremendous creativity.
Vitto was Mia's favorite male actor back in the day when she wrote and directed for TADW-- Teenage Drama Workshop--and when she needed a ringer when she taught and directed at Louisville High School.
And our son. John, who has contributed in so many ways supporting and participating in so many manifestations of the play and film. Despite his significant aversion to being on stage rather than back stage.
There is important history for each cast member which I will eventually discuss in Mia's biography.
