Meet the Boomers!

Updated: Feb 5, 2018

Boomers couple Al and Ruth are a real life husband and wife team! Fans of the NBC TV series ER may recognize Ellen Crawford and Mike Genovese as Nurse Lydia Wright and Sgt. Al Grabarski.

The Normal, IL and St. Louis natives travelled extensively after earning bachelors and masters degrees in drama, marrying in 1982. They met while Mike was living in Washington DC, then moved to Chicago and eventually to Los Angeles.

In Boomers, Al and Ruth are just as cute as their real life counterparts!


As well as being a serious Theater and Film/TV actress, Boomer’s Marykate Harris (as Carol) is a natural comedian. She’s spoofed many celebrities from Hilary Clinton to Queen Elizabeth for The Tonight Sow with Jay Leno, Comedy Central, and more.

Marykate is multitalented as a professional dancer, certified Pilates instructor, soprano singer, and avid sports enthusiast. So it was only natural that she would play a dance instructor in Boomers.
