Bruce Apar (Morrie)
Bruce is feeling thankful... For Morris Schwartz and for Mitch Albom. For being invited to play by castmate Eric Schuster. For the expert guidance of director Pia Haas and technical mastery of Dan Scherer. For the support of Deborah Burke of Town Players of New Canaan, and of The Armonk Players. For the wheelchair and Yiddish lessons by GoJo Clan Productions (Albi Gorn and Robin Ann Joseph). For being of good health that allows him to pursue his passion for acting and embracing life. For life embracing him back. For growing as he ages. For family and friends. For his previous role as Professor Van Helsing in the Elmwood Playhouse (Rockland County) production of Dracula. For his next role as Old Man in Sam Shepard’s “Fool for Love” at Axial Theater (Westchester County). For the love and support of wife Elyse, daughter Elissa (“Lucy”), and late son Harrison, who stood three feet due to dwarfism and felt 10 feet tall when he performed on stage.
