Theatre Talk: Remebering Manny Fried

Manny Fried

By Jim Santella and Anthony Chase


Buffalo, NY – Jim Santella and Anthony Chase pay tribute to theatre icon Manny Fried who died last week at the age of 97.

The bold playwright, undoubtedly, would have appreciated the rest of Jim and Tony's eclectic program. The theatre talk guys preview everything from La Jolla's musical of Little Miss Sunshine to Machiavelli's The Mandrake at the Irish Classical Theatre Company.

Then they move on to a review of Tom Stoppard's Russian Rock and Roll at the Kavinoky. And they round it out with a parody of Casa Blanca - A.R. Gurney's, Screenplay at the Road Less Traveled Theatre.
