I’m Not Rappaport

April 11 -21, 2024

The Love Boat stars Fred Grandy, Ted Lange, and Jill Whelan (Gopher, Isaac, and Vicki) reunite on The Encore’s stage in this Tony Award winning comedy by Herb Gardner. The play takes place in 1982 in New York’s Central Park. Two octogenarians 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.

 Fred Grandy, Ted Lange, and Jill Whelan discuss “I’m Not Rappaport”
