Award Winning Christmas Book Republished After 20 Years
by BWW News Desk - Nov 16, 2013

'The Littlest Spruce' tells the story of a little spruce tree who gets separated from his parents when they are taken away from the forest. But thanks to two silly field mice and a boy named Roy, the littlest spruce is reunited with his parents on Christmas Day inside Roy's home. Jerris was inspired to write the story after the birth of his nephew, and was the first book in a trilogy. The third book in the series, 'The Littlest Witch,' Jerris adapted into a children's musical with his sister, Corinne Aquilina, and is licensed by Steele Spring Stage Rights. Written in metered poetry, 'The Littlest Spruce' is a feel-good story that doesn't dwell on the commercialism of Christmas, instead, focuses on the importance of family values. Former director of 'Good Morning America, Bob McKinnon, said, 'I was always told that big things come in the littlest packages. After reading 'The Littlest Spruce,' I now know why. Succinct, clever writing and colorful illustrations make if a perfect package for the Big and Little alike.' Elizabeth Forbes of Gannett Newspaper said, 'It makes one heck of a heartwarming Christmas tale.' 'The Littlest Spruce' is 28 pages long with full color illustrations by Tanya Weinberger. It is available in paperback on November 19, 2013 on Amazon.com and www.tonyjerris.com. (more...)

BWW Reviews: GREY GARDENS at ACT Not Quite Up To Expectations
by Jay Irwin - Mar 22, 2013

You know when you go on vacation and come across that amazing restaurant that serves one of the most surprising dishes you've ever had that you pine over for years and then you find a restaurant back home that makes the same recipe? And maybe they don't have all the best ingredients or maybe the chef isn't quite as good but it just doesn't live up to the original? Well, unfortunately that's the equivalent of what I witnessed last night at "Grey Gardens" currently at ACT. It's still the same amazing show by Doug Wright, Scott Frankel, and Michael Korie and definitely had some outstanding moments but the whole just didn't quite compare to when I saw it on Broadway with the incredible Christine Ebersole.
