I am a professor of Theatre and a performer for the last 54 years. My specialties are are Theatre Clown and Commedia Dell'Arte. I write poetry and political satire. I do a one-man show of Archy & Mehitabel and a tribute to Yip Harburg, the man who wrote the lyrics for The Wizard of Oz, and also of Tom Lehrer. I love to travel and have found that renting apartments in Paris, Venice and San Francisco is more affordable and fun than hotels.
