My acting scene(s) in Cantorial
I played the role of Warren Ives in Ira Levin’s Cantorial at the Surf Theatre. This is the most difficult stage show I’ve ever done. I was on stage the entire 2+ hours, except for 1 small 2 minute scene. Unfortunately, I don’t have any video or pictures of our performances. This was before the quality of cellphone video and camera became acceptable.
Best putdown ever: The old Jewish deli owner (played by Manny Orbach, cousin of Jerry Orbach) asked me how old I was. After I said how young I was, he replied, “I’ve got SHOES older than you”. LOL!
A Yuppie couple hears eerie, hauntingly beautiful Hebrew singing when they move into a new condominium. The building was formerly a synagogue and it has a ghost a cantor who has been dead for years. Warren becomes obsessed by the singing, which he believes is a sign that he is Jewish maybe the woman he thought was his mother wasn’t and that he must restore the synagogue. Lesley, who is Jewish, finds this overwhelming and walks out. When a change of heart brings her back she finds a beautiful synagogue.
