The Group Rep presents a fundraiser staged reading with violin of Lionel Goldstein’s HALPERN & JOHNSON, directed by Stephen Rockwell, produced by Gray Barnard on Saturday, March 25 at Lonny Chapman Theatre in the NoHo Arts District.

Originally staged in Israel and subsequently around the world to great popular acclaim, this revealing and surprising tale explores the funny, rocky and unusual relationship of two very different gentlemen — one is Jewish and the other Gentile — who meet under difficult circumstances and discover that they have much more in common than they ever could have imagined.

The cast of HALPERN & JOHNSON features the talents of Apollo Dukakis as Halpern, Mitchell Edmunds as Johnson, Maggie Abeckerly as the narrator, with Endre Balogh on violin.

HALPERN & JOHNSON is Saturday, March 25, 2023 at 7:00 pm with a wine/cheese/fruit reception afterwards. All creatives are donating their services. All proceeds will benefit The Group Rep (a California non-profit organization).
