The Bird and Mr. Banks, which premiered at Chicago’s Live Bait Theatre in 2006, explores the world of Seymour Banks, once the most wanted man in America. Fresh out of college with the highest score ever recorded on the notoriously thorny CPA examination, accounting firms all over the country courted him. Many years later, having settled for a less than stellar position at a mid-sized collection agency, Banks again becomes America’s most wanted man—by police in three states and the FBI—and all because of a girl, a dark deed, and a baby bird called Peep.
The Road Theatre Company’s Co-Artistic Director Sam Anderson, who plays Bernard Nadler on ABC’s megahit TV series _LOST, _will make his first local stage appearance in six years in the title role—of Mr. Banks, not The Bird, that is. Long before he was LOST, Anderson’s film and television career has spanned 30 years and he has assayed close to 200 roles. Some of the most familiar Anderson Sightings are as the lecherous Principal in Forrest Gump, lethal attorney Holland Manners on Angel, Donna’s racist father in La Bamba, Dr. Fonzie on _Friends, _the befuddled FBI agent on Everybody Loves Raymond, as well as his participation in “event” television projects From the Earth to the Moon as Dr. Tom Paine, head of NASA, and Stephen King’s _The Stand as _Whitney. His role as the arrogant cardiologist Dr. Kaysen on _E.R. _earned him a SAG Award (Best Ensemble).
