And so goes Hair Theater." --- Eileen Dempsey in THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

"The idea seemed intriguing but quite different…Hair Theater. What is it? It was a ‘chit-chat theater performance. It was hilarious and poignant in turns.

About LAUNCHING BOY WONDER…(a talk-piece about kids leaving the nest)

"We can laugh at ourselves and she will help us!"---Marilyn Parker, former Director of Lower School, The Columbus School for Girls

"Our audience truly enjoyed the true passion you shared as a mother, as a wife, and as a human being. Through the use of humor, you provided everyone with an opportunity to not only look back at their own personal memories as a child and what they did to their own parents, but also provided insight into the dynamics of family relationships from past, present, and future. Ohio Dominican hopes to have you back!"--Christie Wiener, Alumni Director, Ohio Dominican University

About MOMMA CULPA…(Pat's book/ journal about her foibles and follies in raising her son)

"As a pediatrician and health advocate for children, I have several copies of MOMMA CULPA in my two offices. I hand them out to parents when Brazelton and Spock just won't do. My hat and stethoscope go off to Patricia Wynn Brown for adding light, a love of family tradition, and a compassionate sense of humanity to the ups and downs of the serious business of being mommas and poppas."---Angel Cadiz, M.D. in private practice at Coral Springs, Florida

"What this book is culpable of is a deliciously cutting wit/ and as a non-parent, I intend to hand it out with the approximately ten thousand dollars worth of faux leopard blankets, teach-your-child-ancient-Greek learning toys, silver Bedouin rattles, and the like that I have given to new parents--this book is worth more than all of them!"---Jacki Lyden, N.P.R. host and author of DAUGHTER OF THE QUEEN OF SHEBA

"Pat Wynn Brown makes me laugh out loud while feeling good inside, though the latter may have been due to the fact that I ate an entire box of Oreo cookies while chuckling through her book. Either way, she's edible: her book, her outlook, her take on life, her everything."--Christopher Buckley, author of LITTLE GREEN MEN, NO WAY TO TREAT A FIRST LADY

About THE ROCKETTE RULES…(Living and working better the Rockette way)
