As a weekly columnist, he regularly reviews local theater, and also posts them online under “Bruce The Blog Beyond Broadway” (at BruceTheBlog.com). He is listed as a local “mayor” on community news platform Patch.com.
As an actor, Bruce has appeared in local commercials, indie films, web series, and stage plays.
He has launched consumer and business periodicals, including a home entertainment monthly for 7-Eleven, and was editor and publisher of an award-winning suburban weekly newspaper.
Currently, Bruce is secretary of the board of Peekskill Arts Center (under construction, due to open 2020), chairs the Yorktown Arts Council for the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce, and manages PR for the Art Industry Media (AIM) Committee of the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce. Bruce sits on the President’s Council of Northern Westchester Hospital. He serves as an occasional MC, including American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and cabaret venue The Winery at St. George.
He is the “ghostwriter” for a non-fiction book being published in August 2019 by ForbesBooks, “Fisch Tales: The Making of a Millennial Baby Boomer” by Bob Fisch. It focuses on life and career advice through “mutual mentoring,” based on the author’s experiences as CEO of a major apparel specialty retail chain.
With wife Elyse and daughter Elissa, he runs a community charity, Harrison Apar Field of Dreams Foundation, in memory of their son, who passed in 2003 at 15. Says Bruce of his son, “Born with a rare dwarfism, very similar to Fantasy Island actor Herve Villechaize, Harrison stood three feet tall, but when he performed on stage, he felt 10 feet tall.” The Foundation is an ardent supporter of local performing arts students and organizations.
