Jesse L. Martin to Host Our Time Theatre Company Benefit
Rent alum and Law and Order star Jesse L. Martin will host the event, which will honor Austin Pendleton, best known for his roles in the film What's Up, Doc? and the original Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof. Our Time's Teen Company will perform, along with Everett Bradley (who serves as musical director for Our Time) and the cast of Off-Broadway's Stomp. There will also be a raffle of tickets for A Year with Frog and Toad, The Phantom of the Opera, Zanna, Don't!, Naked Boys Singing, The Last Sunday in June, and Rhapsody in Seth.
Founded by Taro Alexander, Our Time includes both a teen and adult company. All company members study acting, writing, music, and dance with professional artists and perform in New York theaters, at speech-language-hearing conferences, and at special events. Our Time plans to add a pre-teen company for children ages 7-12 this fall.
