Our GIANT Star

By: Erin Crissman, Curator
Our illustrious Cardiff Giant is about to reach new heights of stardom. Although he’s already been on a variety of adventures in his long life, this time he’ll be featured in a play written by Charles Traeger. The Night the Cardiff Giant Sang Rossini on the Lawn opens at the Woodstock Fringe Festival in Woodstock, NY in two weeks. Directed by Wallace Norman, the play is set in Cooperstown where a man named George Hull is arrested for breaking into The Farmers’ Museum. From there, the mystery deepens as Hull claims to have heard the giant singing. (The real George Hull created, buried and then unearthed the Giant in 1869.) A few of us from the Museum will be available on the 16th and 20th of August for after-the-show discussions. I’ll submit a follow-up report from the Fringe Festival and let you know how the show and discussion went. I can’t wait to see what adventures will befall the Giant next.
