Donna Reed Scholar on Broadway

Ben Rappaport

Donna Reed Scholar in Broadway play.

Broadway rehearsals have begun for the upcoming new Broadway play, Good Night, Oscar starring Sean Hayes. The cast includes Ben Rappaport in the role of Jack Par.

In Good Night, Oscar, Sean Hayes plays Oscar Levant: Hollywood actor, concert pianist, and the most subversive wit ever to appear on television during its Golden Age.

It's 1958 and Jack Paar is hosting "The Tonight Show." He's booked his favorite guest, a pundit as hilarious as he is unpredictable: Oscar Levant, who once famously proclaimed, "There's a fine line between genius and insanity, and I have erased that line." In 90 short minutes, Oscar will have audiences howling, censors scrambling, and - when it's all over - America will be just a little less innocent than she was before.

Rappaport's Broadway credits include Fiddler On The Roof and Picnic. He is perhaps best known as the star of Outsourced (NBC) and For The People (Shondaland/ABC).

Rappaport was a 2004 Donna Reed Scholarship national finalist in acting from Spring, TX. Read the Broadway World article.
