Limited Engagement - Zero Hour with Jim Brochu as Zero Mostel at New Conservatory Theatre Center in San Francisco

This is a really wonderful, dramatic, enlightening performance. You will regret it the rest of your life if you miss this opportunity to see Jim Brochu as Zero Mostel in Zero Hour. (Yes, that is a threat!)

I had the pleasure of seeing Jim's performance during a special benefit at NCTC a few months ago.  Admittedly, I was not very familiar with Zero Mostel prior to seeing Zero Hour.  However, afterward, I felt like I had been entertained and enlightened all in one evening.  

The performance was a thought provoking biopic covering the life of Zero Mostel from his early years through blacklisting during the McCarthy era to the height of his career in shows such as "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," "Fiddler on the Roof," and "The Producers."


Here is an interview with Jan Wahl and Jim Brochu discussing Zero Hour and the life of Zero Mostel.
