Cesear’s Forum, Cleveland’s small non-profit professional theatre company, is pleased to announce a performance benefit entitled; CLEVELAND THEATRE STORIES with Lee Mackey & Ron Newell. Presented on Sunday August 12th, the mini-memoir, storytelling and banter are reflections of their past in a manner inspired by John Lithgow’s STORIES BY HEART; but moderated, slightly, by Brian Bowers in a light-hearted Merv Griffin tone. The evening’s simplicity and candor pays tribute to other Cleveland actors and institutions, with a biting and humorous nostalgia that avoids sentimentality. Plain Dealer Theatre Critic Tony Brown wrote of “the radiant and sure-voiced Lee Mackey — a legend in the Cleveland theater world.” Cleveland Press Theatre Critic Tony Mastroianni wrote: “In addition to Newell’s major contribution as an actor, there is another in his work of set decoration.”
The party reception begins at 3 pm, performance at 4pm, further reveling until 7 pm.
