Currently through September 7th, Miss Betty Lynn is in Horton Foote's stirring play The Old Friends at the Alley Theatre in Houston. I saw her turn as "Gertrude Hayhurst Sylvester Ratliff" at the Signature Theatre here in New York. It was the first time I had seen Betty in a straight play and I was completely blown away. The depth and realness she portrayed was emotionally cutting.
On September 16th, Betty's much anticipated recording Ghostlight, produced by fellow legendary Texan and long time friend T-Bone Burnett will be released. The album is available for pre-order so you get it immediately upon release (because who can't wait to hear this!) via the Palmetto Records site, or follow the links from www.BettyBuckley.com. The album is available on cd or on vinyl. There's also a limited edition vinyl and cd with art box - the photos are gorgeous!
Meanwhile, fans and friends of beloved Betty are showing their spirit for the upcoming album release:
