Born and raised by immigrant parents in the South Bronx, Howard Zuckerman has spent the last 30 years on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where with his wife Marilyn he brought up their two daughters. He’s produced four documentaries that were aired on various PBS stations. A retired attorney, he has co-authored a legal text on housing discrimination and have taught international trade law and customs law in Wuhan, China. His first short play, Sign Of The Times, has been selected to be staged at NY Summerfest in August 2018. Fluent in Russian, Howard has a working knowledge of Mandarin Chinese and a rudimentary knowledge of Latin and Ancient Greek.
In Sign of the Times Richard Deeds II has become the president of a New York City co-op board and furthers his self-aggrandizement by creating a building sign that is both enormous and enormously expensive. From there, things go poorly for him and the building.
Sign of the Times plays at NY SummerFest at The Hudson Theatre Guild, 441 West 26 Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues). Performances are August 16th at 6:15pm, 17th at 6:15pm and the 19th at 8:30pm.
