Gayle Batt is the kind of lady who throws elegant cocktail parties
while wearing layers of silk chiffon, dripping pearls, and eight
months' pregnant. She is the kind of woman who says "anyhoo" and
calls everyone "Dahlin'" or a special pet name. With hair, makeup,
and nails always done to perfection, she triumphs rather than
crumbles when infidelity, alcoholism, cancer, or any form of
adversity attempts to shatter her family. Endearing and enduring,
Gayle is a big-hearted, strong-willed true Southern belle--and she
taught her son everything he knows about being a man.
In "She Ain't Heavy, She's My Mother," Bryan Batt, the actor who
plays Sal Romano on the Emmy, Golden Globe, and Peabody
Award-winning "Mad""Men, "chronicles his life--and his mother's
supportive presence in it.
From growing up gay below the Mason-Dixon Line to landing principal
roles on Broadway (his first was on roller skates playing a singing
and dancing boxcar in "Starlight Express" ) and later on the
picture-perfect sets of TV's "Mad Men, "to opening the ever-popular
Hazelnut boutique in his hometown of New Orleans with his partner,
Bryan weaves a touching and hilarious story of the South, showbiz,
and an unshakable bond between mother and son.
