In Two Jewish Men In Their Seventies, by Pulitzer Prize Finalist, Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros, two great comedians Jerry Stiller (“Seinfeld”, “The King of Queens”) and Bob Dishy (Sly Fox, Along Came Polly) play two old friends visiting a new holocaust museum. They don't like it so much. They've seen better. This funny and moving short was one of the very first short plays Playing on Air recorded. Thank you, Alex, Jerry, and Bob. Stay tuned after the performance for a conversation with with the playwright, moderated by our Host, Claudia Catania.

Duke and the other Dodgers who won the 1947 pennant: Amoros, Gilliam, Campanella, Furillo, Hodges, Padres are his heart and Red Barber his voice as he faces impending surgery, know-it-all doctors and crazy kids.

Stay tuned after the performance for a conversation with the director moderated by our Artistic Director, Claudia Catania.
