Tada! Theatre, 15 West 28th Street, 2nd Floor in Manhattan.
Despite his best efforts, Rick Younger is turning into his opinionated, wisecracking father. But maybe that’s just what he needs to help him raise his son. “I Am My Father” reveals the rollercoaster ride of fatherhood.
Rick was last seen on stage in his wife Vanessa Shealy’s “One, Two, Whatever You Do…” in last summer’s Fringe Festival. NYTheatre.com stated, “And in a nifty cameo near the end of the play, Rick Younger, as a publicity-seeking doctor, threatens to steal the whole show. Younger and Shealy both possess presence and charisma to spare. It’s exciting to see their work in a space as intimate as the Fourth Street Theatre.”
Actor/comedian Rick Younger, can be seen every month with Kathie Lee and Hoda on The Today Show‘s “Guys Tell All” segment.
