Artistic director Bryna Wasserman welcomes award-winning playwright, screenwriter and director Israel Horovitz

April 2006


Artistic director Bryna Wasserman welcomes award-winning playwright, screenwriter and director Israel Horovitz, who will speak about his play My Old Lady and his life in the theatre. Horovitz is credited with helping to establish off-Broadway in the late 1960’s, through such plays as The Indian Wants the Bronx, which introduced a young Al Pacino and also enjoys the distinction of being the most produced American playwright in French theatre history. His best known works include Line (now in its 32nd year off-Broadway), Rats, The Widow's Blind Date (a major revival opens in Paris later this year), Today I am a Fountain Pen, Park Your Car in Harvard Yard (which Horovitz adapted for film starring Julianne Moore; also being revived on stage in Paris and Prague this season) and co-writing the screenplay for the recent film Sunshine, starring Ralph Fiennes. He is also a respected master-class screenwriting teacher. Mr. Horovitz visits France frequently, where he often directs French-language productions of his plays.

Israel Horovitz is married to Gillian Adams-Horovitz, former British National Marathon Champion/Record holder, and former USA Track & Field (Masters) Marathon Champion. He is also the father of film-producer Rachael Horovitz, TV producer/director Matthew Horovitz, “Beastie Boy” Adam Horovitz and 20-year-old twins, Hannah Horovitz (student at Vassar College) and Oliver Horovitz (student at Harvard College).
