The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee Presents
Jeffrey Tambor in
“What’s Keeping You from Performing Your Life?”
January 28 • Riverview High School
The celebrated actor (“Arrested Development, “Transparent”) will share his wisdom about the Jewish tradition of “repairing the world.”
(Sarasota-Manatee) The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee (JFSM) presents actor Jeffrey Tambor in its next “People of the Book” series, Wednesday, January 28, 7 p.m., at Riverview High School Performing Arts Center, 1 Ram Way, in Sarasota. Seating is reserved; a minimum gift of $36, directed to JFSM’s development efforts, is required. For more information, contact Jeremy Dictor at 941-343-2106 or [email protected] For reservations, visit jfedsrq.org.
A veteran of film, television and the Broadway stage, the multitalented Jeffrey Tambor has created a range of unforgettable characters—from George Bluth, the dysfunctional patriarch of “Arrested Development,” to Maura, the transitional/transgendered hero of “Transparent.” In his presentation for JFSM’s People of the Book series, Tambor will challenge audiences to get in touch with the most unforgettable character of all—their real self. Part seminar and part stand-up, Tambor’s hilarious, one-man show encourages audiences to face their fears and discover their potential. Tambor draws upon his acting career, his family’s struggle with mental health issues, his role as a father of four young children, and the wisdom he’s learned from his Jewish upbringing.
Tambor says there will be plenty of laughter during his presentation.
“It’s a common sense talk about what keeps us from getting on with living instead of thinking, evading, rationalizing and endlessly procrastinating. It’s not a lecture. I’m not heavy handed—I’m light. My attitude is: This is what humans do. I’m 70 years old and I’ve got a couple of pieces of advice. I talk about my family, my career, the ups and down and what I’ve learned. I’m very lucky. I share a few jokes, a few stories, a few insights, and then we get on with life.”
