With Ted Schneider in Birdy.
In the absence of new Adam Rothenberg news, we here at the Apple thought we’d take a look back at one of projects from 2003, the Women’s Project production of Birdy. Adapted by Naomi Wallace from the novel by William Wharton, Birdy “tells the story of a man undone by the horrors of World War II and the friend who tries to guide him back to earth.”
Adam earned “especial praise … in the most demanding role of the adult Al” from New York Magazine. Curtain Up noted that “Adam Rothenberg stands out as the older Al,” who is “called to the mental hospital where the resident psychiatrist, Doctor White (Richard Bekins), has been unable to break through the catatonic, non-eating state into which Al’s friend Birdy (Ted Schneider) has retreated.”
