“This show is not just a play, but a public service in a comedy format – which is damn funny.” – New York Post
The Anvil Centre Theatre is thrilled to present the exclusive engagement of comedy legend, Ed Asner in the hit comedy A Man and His Prostate by Ed Weinberger for only two shows at the Anvil Centre Theatre on April 27 & 28th.
A Man and His Prostate takes a serious look at the disease that fatally affects almost a quarter of a million men every year. This disease is treatable, even curable when diagnosed early, yet men are often reluctant to admit let alone discuss their symptoms. Hopefully this production can help men open up to talking about the problem.
Ed Asner, the much beloved Emmy Award-winning actor (Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant) stars in this seriously funny show about a serious subject. The play is based on a true life medical emergency of his close friend Ed Weinberger, award-winning writer of the Mary Tyler Moore Show, and his journey to discover his inner self both literally and figuratively. This near tragedy is masterfully transformed into a poignant monologue perfectly portrayed by Asner as he visits the hospital in preparation for a surgery he needs but doesn’t want.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see a comedy legend in the intimate setting of the Anvil Centre Theatre!
