I’m Not Rappaport

STARRING THE LOVE BOAT’S FRED GRANDY AND TED LANGE

BREAKING NEWS: Jill Whelan (Captain Stubing’s daughter, Vicki, on The Love Boat) joins the cast! It’s a Love Boat reunion! 

The Love Boat stars Fred Grandy and Ted Lange (Gopher and Isaac) reunite on The Encore’s stage in this Tony Award winning play 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.

The playwright was inspired while writing in Central Park. He saw two animated old men 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.

Directed by Vincent J. Cardinal
