Here's the first report from our new editor at large Shawn Farquhar. Shawn just completed the most recent Bob Fitchworkshop in Maryland and took some time to talk not only to Bob, but to the other attendees including "Joey C - Mindreader to the Mob," Eric Leclair, Mark Phillips, Tom Paxton & John Tudor. For those somehow not familiar with Bob Fitch, he has appeared in an unbelievable twenty-seven shows on Broadway,. Most recently as Senex in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," (starring Whoopi Goldberg). In the Broadway production of "Annie," Bob won the Burns-Mantle Award for best featured actor in a musical for his villainous performance as Rooster. He's also performed in films, dancing with Steve Martin in "Pennies from Heaven," and more recently as a rather scary character in Stephen King's "Thinner." Bob is the "missing link" between magic and real world theatre skills for many performers and I'm honored to be able to present this chat to you on the Magic Newswire.
