Crown Hill Cemetery

Posted on Sat, Aug 30, 2008 at 10:19 AM

I can relate to “Crown Hill Cemetery”, a monologue by New York City’s Lisa Haas. I too come from a family where death is a hot topic. In, fact the first thing out of my father’s mouth on his recent visit from Toronto was “I’m not having a funeral. You kids just get together and sprinkle my ashes and then go out to lunch—I’m paying.” Still, as much as I liked her funny observations on death and her easy-going manner, the piece seemed somehow over-rehearsed. It felt like a stand-up comedy routine, although the aim seemed to be more like story telling. But perhaps I’m quibbling. There were plenty of laughs as well as complimentary corn chips and carrots. How can you not like a show with nibblies?
