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.”


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

TORONTO SUN (John Coulbourn)
