A B O U T   T H E   P E R F O R M E R S

Stuart Rosh's music can be heard occasionally on public radio stations and in strange places like Kentucky Fried Chicken stores in England. Under his legal name, Stuart Rojstaczer, he is mostly known as a novelist, geophysicist, and grade inflation expert. His novel, The Mathematician's Shiva (Penguin Books), won the 2014 National Jewish Book Award for Outstanding Debut Fiction.

This is Howard Petrick’s third show about his life in the 1960s. His critically acclaimed Breaking Rank and Never Own Anything You Have to Paint or Feed have been performed at twenty-eight theater festivals throughout North America. He has been performing since 2008 and is glad to be back at Tell It On Tuesday.

Phil Surkis is a comedian, solo performer and a producer. He regularly performs in the Solo Sundays series at Stage Werx. He both produces and performs at his comedy showcase, Grey Matter, and he is a producer on W. Kamau Bell's talk show, Kamau Right Now!

When Marion Lovinger came from Paris to San Francisco 18 years ago, she did not imagine that one day she would be performing her own writing in English. Her background was in theater and she was used to a text provided and partners to rehearse with. Thanks to the Marsh, she discovered what she wanted the most in life: to make people laugh. And that you do not need an extraordinary life to have something to say.

Erica Lann-Clark is a storyteller, solo performer, writer and teacher.  She’s performed across the country from NYC to LA to Jonesborough, TN to right here tonight.  She worked as Director of Storytelling for Stagebridge from 2000 to 2006. She’s teaming up tonight with Asaf Ophir, a woodwind player. In Israel Asaf played in musicals and in klezmer bands. In the Bay Area, Asaf plays in jazz and klezmer bands and accompanies Erica’s Jewish stories.
