Rob Adler (Lawrence Garfinkle) is thrilled to join Interact for the first time. He performed most recently in Theatre Dybbuks world premier of the lost Greek Tragedy, EXAGOGUE at the Fowler Museum of UCLA. Adler is a director of stage and screen, faculty member at the University of Southern California and founder of the AdlerImprov Studio in Hollywood. In 2013, Adler directed the award winning short film “iVOTE,” based on the true story of a whistleblower, starring Academy Award nominee Eric Roberts and Emmy Award winners Dan Lauria and Sharon Lawrence. A long time activist, Adler’s artistic mission is to raise awareness of peace and progress issues, which is also reflected in the plays he has directed, including PAUL ROBESON: THE ARTIST MUST TAKES SIDES in Chicago. He devised and directed PATRIOT ACT, starring Obie winner Roger Guenveur Smith, continuing his long time affiliation with Los Angeles’ Bootleg Theater. For the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum, Adler co-directed RISE & SHOUT, starring Joe Mantegna, Jack Klugman, Jean Smart and Wendie Malick.
