This summer up at Piven Theatre, I took over the part of Ed Sullivan (yes, that Ed Sullivan) in Michael Stock’s Lady Chaplin & Her Tramp: The Life & Art of Charlie Chaplin. My friend Dieterich Gray (hey, he’s in our Realization chapter) had to leave to do a film, so I came in for the last two weekends and had a great time with a wonderful cast. Did you know that Sullivan and Chaplin had a long-running feud? Did you know that Sullivan had been an entertainment reporter prior to his long-running show? Now you know.
