The Actors Temple Presents LOVE LETTERS Reading Tonight, 6/24
The show is being produced by Larry's manager, Matthew Beckoff and comedian Bob Greenberg. Greenberg, who regularly produces comedy benefits for the Temple had been after Larry for some time to make an appearance. "We wanted to do something different," adds Beckoff. "We didn't want it to be Larry showing up and doing five minutes of material. We wanted it to be special."
The performance is a stage reunion for Storch and Wallace. "We did Neil Simon's I Ought to Be in Pictures at The Hampton Playhouse several years ago, and have remained good friends ever since." Larry continues "It's great working with Marie again. She's a terrific actress and a good friend. Her agreeing to do it is one of the reasons I wanted to do it." Beckoff concludes "The Actors Temple has such an incredible history and so many legendary stars used to come here; Milton Berle, Joe E. Lewis, Al Jolson, The Three Stooges. Larry is one of the last from this generation. He worked with many of these performers. Milton Berle helped break Larry into comedy, so it's fitting that we are doing it here. I'm sure Uncle Milty would be proud." Tickets to the event are $25 and are available by calling 212-245-6975. Please visit their website for more information.www.theactorstemple.org
