I am very pleased and excited to announce that award-winning actor and entertainer Robin Field will be narrating the audiobook edition of Genesis, Part I of Idolatry (already available in paperback and for Kindle). Many of you will remember Robin Field from his role in our production of Nobel-winning author Maurice Maeterlinck’s Monna Vanna, which we produced in Hollywood in late 2007 and on the 2008 QCFA Arts Cruise.
Robin Field is an award-winning entertainer whose career has spanned six decades. As a singer-pianist his appearances have taken him from cabarets to Carnegie Hall. As an actor he won leading roles Off-Broadway in Your Own Thing, Look Me Up, Speed Gets the Poppys and the revival of Rodgers & Hart’s Babes in Arms. As a member of The Klowns, Field toured with the Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey Circus, recorded for RCA Victor and starred in an ABC-TV special with Sammy Davis and Jerry Lewis. In 1972 Dom De Luise presented him as his “discovery” on “The Merv Griffin Show.” As a composer-lyricist Field toured the U.S. and Canada in his own one-man show Reason in Rhyme, based on Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism, and he wrote, directed and starred in seven editions of Broadway — A Hundred Years Ago. For five years he served as creator and host of the New York radio series “Broadway Time Capsule” and for two years as editor and publisher of “Revival”, a magazine on theatrical history. He and his singing partner Bill Daugherty won rave reviews throughout the U.S. as well as in London and Amsterdam, won four MAC awards for “Best Musical-Comedy Team,” and their show Daugherty & Field Off-Broadway was nominated for a New York Outer Critics’ Circle Award as “Best Musical Revue.” In 1992 they headlined at Carnegie Hall to a sell-out crowd and a standing ovation.
In regional productions Field played Axel in Don’t Drink the Water, Beverly Carlton in The Man Who Came to Dinner, Captain Keller in The Miracle Worker, Frederick in The Pirates of Penzance, Ko-Ko in The Mikado, Judge Wargrave in Ten Little Indians and Mark Twain in Mark Twain in Concert. He also wrote, composed and directed the musicals Blossoms of Big Bear, The Bronze Ring, The Singing Mountains, The Crystal Palace and Tom Sawyer.
