Rutgers Grads make appearances in Roger

Two days ago the staff gathered in our cabaret for our final meet and greet of the season as we began rehearsals of Roger is Dead a new play by Elaine May. The cast includes Tom Bloom, Mark Blum, Julia Brothers, Carman Lacivita, Patricia O'Connell and Marlo Thomas. The world got a little smaller as they introduced themselves and spoke to the staff.

Carman Lacivita is a recent graduate of the MFA program at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. He recently appeared opposite Kevin Kline in Cyrano de Bergerac on Broadway. Julia Brothers, who is well known in the San Francisco Bay Area actually appeared in a children's production her senior year at George Street Playhouse when it was run by founder Eric Krebs. Mr. Krebs at the time, was just starting the theatre, and taught classes at Rutgers University. It just proves you are never too far away from your roots and it's always nice when "hometown actors" appear on our stage.
