KEEPING LIVE THEATRE ALIVE!
A star-studded line-up of actors has pitched in to help Penguin Rep Theatre bring the arts to people’s homes and to highlight the importance of keeping professional theatre alive and thriving.
The project is the brainchild of actor DAN LAURIA (The Wonder Years, Lombardi), who called upon dozens of well-known screen and stage actors to create short videos reading works they've written.
Each week, we will be featuring additional videos, so be sure to re-visit our website often.
JOHN CULLUM (Shenandoah, On the Twentieth Century) tells how the King James version of the Bible saved a career! Spend time with a Broadway legend as he tells of his first theatre audition and the experience of that brazen young actor who just arrived in the Big Apple. As a special treat, see him in one of his great musical performances at the end of the video.
ALFRED MOLINA (Spiderman, Red, Art, Fiddler on the Roof) comes to understand the power and impact of his roots in live theatre.
LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS (La Bamba, Stand and Deliver, The King and I) introduces us to his latest book The Tinderbox, a story reminding us we all want the same thing -- "to love and survive in peace."
SAUL RUBINEK (Hunters, Warehouse 13) whose first language was Yiddish and some French (he calls it Fredish!), shares an old world parable told by his grandfather, a "hidden child" in Poland during WWII.
JOE SPANO (Hill Street Blues, NCIS) offers a glorious reminiscence of his journey as an actor and recalls the day he conjured the Harlem Renaissance poet James Weldon Johnson for inspiration, which stays with him even now -- we must all "DO something" to complete the world.
TONY TODD (Candyman, No Place to be Somebody, King Hedley II) travels back to meet the heavyweight boxing champion and inspiration for the play The Great White Hope, Jack Johnson, and shares clips of the world in which he lived.
WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT
Penguin Rep Theatre will reopen as soon as we possibly can. But in the meantime we are trying to share the live theatre experience with old and new friends from around the world. Your support helps to make this possible at this difficult time.
