"City Lights" & My Novel at Powell Hall for 2 Nights

Okay, it's another post about Charlie. But this is big. The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra will present Chaplin's greatest film, "City Lights," with the full orchestra playing the original score, "live." 

There's nothing like seeing a Chaplin film with a large audience, to share the laughter. 

As an added attraction, my novel will be available for sale in the lobby. It's not as funny. 

The dates are Wed. 12/29 
and Thurs. 12/30, at 7:30 pm.


  1. Congrats!
    You're finally appearing at Symphony Hall!!!

    p.s. If you're planning to read you book during the concert, wear a raincoat.
    Tomatoes can stain.

  2. Bravo! Bravissimo! Things are as they should be, amen.


  3. This is HUGE! Way to go Gerry. So proud to know you!

  4. Congratulations, Gerry. A nice addition for the evening.

  5. Thank you, thank you, all, for your welcome words. I went to the performance last night, am going again tonight. Sat with Charlie Brennan in house seats, talked about Chaplin afterwards, met his beautiful wife and daughter (Brennan's, not Chaplin's). I know the music score so well, maybe they'll ask me to conduct tonight. I think I'll take my pocket baton with me.
