I'm Not Rappaport


Herb Gardner

5 Male 2 Female

Just when we thought there would never be another joyous, laugh filled evening on Broadway, along came this delightful play to restore our faith in the Great White Way

If you thought A Thousand Clowns was wonderful, wait until you take a look at I'm Not Rappaport! Set in a secluded spot in New York's Central Park, the play is about two octogenarians determined to fight off all attempts to put them out to pasture

Talk about an odd couple! Nat is a lifelong radical determined to fight injustice real or imagined who is also something of a spinner of fantasies. He has a delightful repertoire of eccentric personas, which makes the role an actor's dream

The other half of this unlikely partnership is Midge, a Black apartment super who spends his days in the park hiding out from tenants, who want him to retire

"Rambunctiously funny" ~ N.Y. Post

"A warm and entertaining evening" ~ W.W. Daily

Tony Award Winner, Best Play 1986
