Youngstown State University’s Cliffe College of Creative Arts announces “An Evening with Austin Pendleton” on Thursday, February 10 at 7:00pm in Bliss Hall’s Ford Theater. The event will benefit Trumbull New Theatre, an organization Pendleton, a Warren, OH native, has supported his entire life as an actor, director and patron.

Tickets are all general admission and $20 each, available online at www.ysu.tix.com, by calling the University Theatre Box Office at 330-941-310 or at the door prior to the production.

The event’s unscripted and casual format will include Pendleton talking about his extraordinary professional life.

Austin Pendleton is an actor, director, and playwright born in Warren, OH. He graduated from The University School in Shaker Heights, OH and from Yale in 1961.

He has made hundreds of appearances in film and TV and appeared several times in such TV shows as Homicide, Oz, and Law and Order. His film credits include A Beautiful Mind, Finding Dory, Finding Nemo, Christmas with the Kranks, and Amistad, among numerous others.

Onstage in New York he has acted on Broadway (Choir Boy, at Manhattan Theatre Club; The Diary of Anne Frank, with Natalie Portman; and as Motel the Tailor in the original cast of Fiddler on the Roof); and productions off-Broadway and off-off Broadway.

As a director he has been represented by the premiere productions of A Thousand Pines, by Matthew Greene; Between Riverside and Crazy, by Stephen Adly Giurgis, which went on to win the Pulitzer Prize; Fifty Words, by Michael Weller, with Elizabeth Marvel and Norbert Leo Butz; Chekhov productions at Classic Stage Company such as Three Sisters (for which he won the Obie, and which starred Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard, and Jessica Hecht), Ivanov, which starred Ethan Hawke, and Uncle Vanya, with Mamie Gummer; A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur, by Tennessee Williams, with Kristine Nielsen and Annette O’Toole; War of the Roses (Shakespeare, at HB Studio); Hamlet (also at CSC, with Peter Sarsgaard); The Little Foxes, on Broadway, with Elizabeth Taylor and Maureen Stapleton (five Tony nominations, one for direction and three for actors, including Ms. Taylor and Ms. Stapleton).

He has written three plays: Orson’s Shadow (which ran off-Broadway for a year and was then staged in London); Uncle Bob, (which ran at the Mint Theatre in New York, and was then produced in Paris, translated by Jean-Marie Besset), and Booth, which was staged in New York starring Frank Langella. He has taught at HB Studio in New York since 1969.
