A Man and his Prostate
Starring ED ASNER
Now on November  21 & 22

Based on a true-life experience, a man discovers his inner self in more ways than one. A near tragedy is masterfully transformed into a one-man comedy, perfectly portrayed by Ed Asner in his hilarious visit to the hospital in preparation for a surgery he doesn’t want
Ed Asner, winner of seven Emmy Awards, stars in this comedic look at a serious topic. Dealing with prostate cancer on a personal level, the play was created and written by Ed Weinberger, who, like Asner, has earned numerous Emmy Awards for his television work.  Weinberger wrote for comedy legend Bob Hope, while also plying his craft for stand-up comics Richard Pryor and Dick Gregory. Additionally, Weinberger put his writing skills to work on television for “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” “The Cosby Show,” “The Dean Martin Show” and “Taxi.”

Rooted in reality, “A Man and His Prostate” is based on Weinberger’s true-life experience that occurred while vacationing in Italy.  Leisure turned into a jolting medical episode when he was rushed to a hospital for prostate cancer surgery.

Aside from skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer among American men, according to the American Cancer Society and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Somber medical realities are woven into a unique stage production that strives to entertain as it informs. 

Tickets will go on sale in October.
