Jim Brochu brings Zero Mostel back to life in “Zero Hour.” He re-creates the definitive backstory to this amazing performer's appearances in such shows as “Fiddler on the Roof,” “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” Mel Brooks’ “The Producers,” and many more. Brochu is both hilarious and poignant as he recounts Mostel’s big life - as a Broadway legend, a larger than life personality and the target of Hollywood blacklisting.

“This is acting on the grand scale, full of blood and guts and glory and if you care about theatre, or about the evils that people have done (and still continue to do) in the name of politics, then you must see this show.”

TORONTO STAR (Richard Ouzounian)

“I don’t know how many hours Mr. Brochu, who also wrote the script, has spent in front of a mirror practicing his eye rolls and bellowing quips, but it has paid off. He’s the spitting image of the bearish Mostel, down to the strands of hair barely covering his head.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES (Jason Zioman)

“... a madcap theatrical portrait of the legendary Zero Mostel that is absolutely delightful and, ultimately, deeply moving.”

TORONTO SUN (John Coulbourn)

The Actors’ Temple, Congregation Ezrath Israel, where spirituality, creativity, acceptance and inclusion are core principles, where enduring values of Judaism translate into human connections. Progressive and egalitarian, welcoming people from all denominations, interfaith couples and families, regardless of race, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Find community. Experience deeds of loving-kindness. Nourish your mind, heart, and soul. Deepen your relationship to God and Judaism. And we’re not just for actors, singers, dancers, performers, musicians, artists and writers, although we have many treasured and creative members in those professions!

This is a very important play, perfect as a reflection of the times we live in today, and our beautiful Actors’ Temple is the perfect venue. Please come, enjoy and help us reach our goals for the 21st Century.


This event is not to be missed.
