Cry of the Mountain and Adelind Horan packed the house at Judson Church in Greenwich Village tonight.

The crowd loved it.

And even though the big church can both swallow and echo sound, the audience, over 100 (more than expected, so we had to add extra rows in front), anyway, the audience stayed focused on each character be brought to live so well.

Another standing ovation, for the show and the talent, and the message of the play — the people who it represents.

After the show for those interested, Adelind and Annalyse McCoy held a informative and often person discussion about the play, the process, and Mountaintop Removal in Appalachia.

Thank you, Annalyse, for bringing you Kentucky childhood to our post show community.

Annalyse was the artists’ organizer for Appalachia Rising and is now living in NY.  She is a musician — her bank is called, “Two-Thirds Goat.”  Take a listen here:
