The Leo Yassenoff Jewish Community Center, at 1125 College Ave., has provided the following announcements:
Actor Allan Rich conducts workshop during Jewish Bookfair
Allan Rich - once a blacklisted actor during the McCarthy era, and now enjoying featured and supporting roles in such television shows as "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "CSI," as well as feature films such as "Amistad" and "Quiz Show" - will present an actors workshop at the JCC of Greater Columbus on Nov. 7 at 2 p.m.
Theater students and actors, as well as the general public, are invited to attend this free workshop, to be held in the JCC's Roth-Resler Theater.
Over the years, Rich has taught his organic approach to acting to such Hollywood luminaries as Jamie Lee Curtis, Rene Russo, Sharon Stone, Mariska Hargitay, Mick Jagger and Larry Miller.
On Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m., Rich will present his book, "A Leap from the Method: An Organic Approach to Acting," as part of the JCC's annual Jewish Bookfair.
The JCC Jewish Bookfair presents the works of Jewish authors or Jewish themes during a three-week long event. Authors of many of the books presented will be making appearances at the JCC Jewish Bookfair, including Rich.
The book, which serves as a basis for his workshops, provides an insider's view of actors and acting - the process, the people, and ultimately, the leap from the method proposed by the legendary Constantin Stanislavsky. The ideas contained in this book can be applied to the salesman, the politician, the physician or anyone who deals with the public and presents him or herself to other people.
For more information about the Actors Workshop, call Jared Saltman at 231-2731. For more information about the JCC Jewish Bookfair, visit the JCC website at www.columbusjcc.org.
