Hey friends-- get the rubber rooms ready: "They Call Me Mr. Fry", Teacher Show, Opens Friday

I met Jack Freiberger when he did his show at the Fringe Festival in NYC in 2008. Jack taught in LA and developed his show from his experiences. A bunch of us are going opening night this Friday, Nov. 6, 8PM. The Comic Strip Live at 1568 2nd Ave (bwtn 81st & 82nd)

Join us. You can get tickets at the door (teachers, $20) or email me and I'll reserve a bunch.

Jack will be joining us at Woody McHales tonight at the ICE fundraiser (starting at 4pm and on into the evening) to talk about the show.


Hey friends-- get the rubber rooms ready.

Mr. Fry is back with his hit show They Call Me Mister Fry, the story about a 1st-year teacher teaching 5th grade in South Central Los Angeles - the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of a teacher.

"Jack Freiberger is the Patch Adams of Education... highest quality of off-broadway theater”

LA Examiner


“This production has enough heart, audacity, and originality

to stand out from the crowd mainly because of the artistry of Jack Fry.”

dctheatrescene.com


“What Freiberger dramatizes most masterfully and intimately is...

the triumphant tragedy of the self recognition.”

The Washington City Paper

(see Reviews)


Recently selected by top DC theater websites as one of the "Best of the Fest" (dctheaterscene.com) and "Best Male Monologue" (allartsreview4u.com) at the 2009 Washington Capital Fringe Festival, They Call Me Mister Fry has been playing in Los Angeles before sold out crowds and standing ovations for two years.


It is to be performed for a "Command Performance" this fall in Washington, DC at the Department of Education before 2 at-capacity shows, and it will have an 8-week off-broadway run at the Comic Strip Live Theater (read more) (see video promoting the event)
