I'm Not Rappaport - 1985 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Our fall shaw is the 1986 Tony Award winning play by Herb Gardner. The play takes place in 1982 under a bridge in New York's Central Park. Two octogenarians, one white one black, meet regularly determined to fight off all attempts to put them out to pasture. Nat is a cantankerous Communist whose daughter is urging him into the old folk's home. Midge, an apartment superintendent, spends his days in the park hiding in the past and from his disgruntled tenants. The playwright was inspired while writing in Central Park. He saw two animated old men, one black and one white, alternating between sitting quietly and yelling at each other. Their strange friendship intrigued Gardner and he used it as the basis for the main characters, Nat and Midge. I’m Not Rappaport explores the realities of aging, surviving in an urban jungle, and finding a safe place in the world.

Closing: January 17, 1988

GOOD MORNING, THEATERATI! It's Tuesday, June 6, 2017 - and we know what you're thinking: Where the hell was my favorite early morning theater news and gossip yesterday? Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we were unable to raise ourselves up from the bed and make our way to our desk in order to start writing. After a particularly challenging weekend, we were a bit under the weather and, truth be told, exhausted. We offer our abject apologies and request your indulgences, although we were just as disappointed as we hope you were because we were unable to live life dramatically with any sense of style on Monday.
