What happens when a white boy from Indiana ends up teaching fifth graders in South Central Los Angeles? This must-see one-man show written by and starring Jack Fry (Freiberger) has been getting standing ovations before packed houses in New York and Los Angeles.
This funny yet poignant true story will have you laughing and crying for a teacher having to deal with students, the system, an alter ego King Arthur, and finally with his own fragile existence.
Jack Freiberger, “Mister Fry,” is ecstatic to have his show in New York City and at Comic Strip Live Theater. “Working with Bob and Richie has been a pleasure. I can’t wait to bring the timely and fascinating story of ‘Mister Fry’ to the tri-state area’s audiences. My experience as a teacher in South Central LA made me write this play with humor, emotion and utter respect for all teachers. I’m so excited to share it.”
“They Call Me Mister Fry” is currently directed by Jeff Michalski, Second City’s ETC founding member and alumnus, and was selected “Best of the Fest” from the 2009 Washington Capital Fringe. In addition to “They Call Me Mister Fry,” Jack Freiberger has starred in various independent and educational films and has been seen on stage throughout the LA area. He trained at Meisner, The Shakespeare Company, and Adam Roake’s Film Acting Lab.
