An interview with director Michael Stock and actor Joshua Markowitz
by Joel Markowitz
I trecked up to NYC to see Mr. Baseball in the NYC Fringe Festival at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in Greenwich Village. My nephew Josh, an aspiring actor, was playing Smitty in the show and I was eager to see this Kosher Ham perform.
I sat down with Josh and actor/director/producer Michael Stock, who plays a frustrated old-time baseball player, to discuss the journey of the show from the Sideway Theatre in Chicago to the NYC Fringe Festival, their roles and how the show was changed for the Fringe Festival. They even perform one of their favorite scenes from the show.
Listen here, baseball fans.
Did the show hit a home run, or did it have a hard time making it to first base? Here’s a review from nytheatre.com.
