Mondays Green Apple Event: The Birth of Roxanne Georgette Shapiro
The Green Apple Music and Arts Festival may have closed out its formal schedule on Sunday night at the Ziegfeld Theater with the premiere of Wetlands Preserved, however one event extended into Monday afternoon. As many festivalgoers came to learn, executive producer Peter Shapiro and his wife, Rebecca were awaiting the birth of their first child. The word spread that at any moment over the course of the weekend, Peter might make the dash to the hospital with his wife. As it turns out, the Shapiros new daughter has exquisite timing. While sitting at the Ziegfeld on Sunday, watching the final credits roll at the close of his film, Shapiro received the call and bolted the premises. At 3:32 PM on Monday afternoon Roxanne Georgette Shapiro was born, weighing in at 7 pounds and fourteen ounces. All family members appear to be content if a bit exhausted.
