David Garrison Stars In RED REMEMBERS at the Berkshire Theatre Festival 9/12 - 11/1
Noted Tony-nominated stage and screen actor DAVID GARRISON stars in the one-man show RED REMEMBERS, beginning September 12 (and, continuing through to November 1) at the Berkshire Theatre Festival in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. John Rando (‘Urinetown') is directing.
Says Garrison, "Red was an American original - a pioneer broadcaster on both radio and television, a man who brought baseball into the homes of countless fans, a Southerner transplanted to New York, a writer and humorist in the grand tradition of Mark Twain and H.L. Menken (‘the catbird seat' and ‘rhubarb' were phrases coined by Red), and a man troubled by alcoholism and perfectionism. Red's daughter Sarah was a neighbor of mine in Santa Fe and brought the script, by Andrew Guerdat, to my attention. I was immediately impressed by both Andy's work and Red's character. It is a character rich in irony and intelligence."
Garrison, perhaps best known for his four-year stint on TV's Married ... with Children, has appeared in numerous Broadway productions -- including Torch Song Trilogy, A Day In Hollywood/A Night In The Ukraine, Titanic , Wicked, The Pirates of Penzance, Bells Are Ringing -- and, Off- Broadway in I Do! I Do!, New Jerusalem, Geniuses, and, It's Only A Play.
Garrison has appeared on the small screen in recurring roles on Law And Order, The West Wing, and The Practice, and has guest-starred on such shows as NYPD Blue, Everybody Loves Raymond, Without A Trace, Judging Amy, Murphy Brown, Murder She Wrote, and, L.A. Law. He has been featured on the PBS Great Performance presentations of On The Town with the London Symphony, and Ira Gershwin at 100: A Celebration at Carnegie Hall.
