Eva Grayzel Performs Off-Broadway

Eva in Pippin 1982

For those of you who didn’t know me 25 years ago, I dreamed of being a Broadway singer and dancer. In my senior year in high school, I got the part of The Leading Player in Pippin which Ben Vereen played on Broadway. I knew I had what it took to be a Broadway star.

I got into NYU School of the Arts for Drama, but every course was theater related and I thought I should have a more rounded education and chose Barnard. I got a great education and did some theater. After college, I pursued an acting career whole-heartedly for two years landing very few interesting parts. But, as an after school teacher, I developed interactive storytelling techniques and my career as a storyteller was born.

Fast forward 25 years. I’m telling my personal survival story at conferences around the world. When I saw a theater festival in New York City looking for one-act plays that are easy to produce, I applied. On October 8th, I have my one night of fame on 42nd street. My presentation educates, inspires, motivates, and entertains….a lot of bang for your time and a few bucks.EvaGrayzel_Oct8_2013

Hope to see you there!

  1. Hello Eva…. Saw this and I wanted to drop a note and say Hi.
    I’m an ’83 Grad of DMHS and saw your performance as The Leading Player and you did an outstanding job. I never forgot your performance.
    Think you’re doing a great job of getting the word out for Cancer checks and pre-screening. My wife (’81 DMHS Grad) is also a 4th stage cancer survivor(non-hodgkin’s lymphoma), so I know how important the work you are doing is.

    Just wanted to let you know you’re appreciated.
    Take care.

      Chris, what a nice note to wake up to this morning. I always thought I would make it on Broadway after Pippin, but it never happened. Funny looking back what path life takes. I’m glad to know your wife survived. I’m sure she left your whole family a legacy of courage and gratitude. Thanks for getting in touch.
