Lafee: This coming Sunday evening (May 25), I’ll be performing an excerpt of my (creeping-toward-the-finish-line) solo play The Disappearance of Alfred Lafee. The scenes (about 20 minutes in all) are different from those I performed in February at The Marsh and Stage Werx, though if you saw me at the Berkeley Marsh last year you will recognize them. The rest of the interesting lineup at Solo Sundays will be new, so take a break from the grill this weekend and come down and join the fun.
Lenny: The talented musician/playwright/ performer Hershey Felder—you may have seen his one-man show about George Gershwin last year at the Berkeley Rep—has a new solo piece called Maestro, all about the lives and loves of the inimitable Leonard Bernstein. I’ll get a chance to chat with Hershey Felder in an onstage conversation after his performance on Sunday evening June 15, as part of a benefit evening organized by the great people at Jewish Family Children’s Services of the East Bay. Come out and see an interesting show and support a fantastic organization. Tickets for this special performance are here.
