Sam Mandel, Dor Gvirtsman with Deborah Kobylt
Director Simon Levy and actors Sam Mandel and Dor Gvirtsman enjoyed chatting about our smash hit production of The Chosen with talk radio/TV host Deborah Kobylt on Wednesday. The acclaimed sold-out run of The Chosen has been extended to June 10th.
A silent father, an ancient tradition and an unexpectedly important game of baseball forge bonds of lifelong friendship between two Jewish boys from “five blocks and a world apart” in this funny, poignant, timely and timeless father-son story about recognition and acceptance of “the other.”
“CRITIC’S CHOICE… DEEPLY EMOTIONAL… reminds us to reach across divides” — Los Angeles Times

Deborah Kobylt hosts her own online radio/TV talk program, Deborah Kobylt LIVE, every Wednesday at 1pm on Universal Broadcasting Network (UBN).

Did You Hear Tanya Today on the Radio?
Today is a crazy busy day on the radio for our intrepid playwright from Chicago, Tanya Saracho. Driving around LA in her little white Honda loaned by the Fountain, Tanya is hitting the air waves today in Los Angeles, talking about the opening of the west coast premiere of her new play, El Nogalar.
This morning she did a live in-studio radio interview with Sonali Kolhatkar on “Uprising” on KPFK (90.7 FM).
This afternoon she was interviewed by Steve Julian on KPCC (89.3 FM). About Steve Julian, Tanya raved: “the nicest guy!”.
Tonight she is being interviewed by Hugh Esten from KUSC (91.5 FM) for a series of short spots to air the week of Feb. 6.
Tanya, you rock! You go, girl!
