Robert Prosky and Sons Share the Stage
The veteran actor and his two sons, Andy and John, treat the local theater crowd to three Broadway caliber performances in Cape May Stage's new production of The Price.
Arthur Miller's twice Tony nominated play deals with the angst when two estranged brothers come together to settle their father's estate.
Andy Prosky plays a hard working New York City cop on the verge of retirement. His brother in real life, John Prosky, plays his brother on stage - a wealthy and successful physician.
Their real life father, Robert Prosky, takes center stage as Gregory Solomon, a 90 year-old Russian Jewish appraiser, hired to assess the family's possessions.
While the subject of The Price - the price we pay for our choices in life - is weighty stuff, it's the incredible acting by this talented family that makes this play a must see.
The two Prosky brothers live in New York and Los Angeles. This is the first time in 10 years that they've been able to share the stage.
Andy Prosky, the New Yorker, has appeared in productions ranging from Lincoln Center's King Lear and the New York Shakespeare Festival to films like Men in Black, Up Close and Personal, and The Great Outdoors.
John Prosky, the LA resident, has appeared in over fifty TV shows. Those appearances include recurring roles in ER, The Closer, The Practice, JAG, and NYPD Blue as well as guest starring roles on Grey's Anatomy, House MD, The Bernie Mac Show and 24.
Both brothers turn in superb performances in The Price, but it's their father who wins the audience over as the weary but sharp appraiser Gregory Solomon.
Robert Prosky's theater career includes a Tony nomination for his role in the original Broadway production of Glengarry Glen Ross.
TV audiences got to know Prosky as the endearing Sgt. Jablonski on Hill Street Blues. His many film character roles include performances in The Natural , Broadcast News, David Mamet's Things Change, Hoffa, Far and Away, The Last Action Hero, and Mrs. Doubtfire.
The only cast member in The Price not part of the family is Australia-born actress Leisa Mather, who captures perfectly the hope and frustration of a policeman's wife.
You can see The Price Wednesdays through Sundays at 8PM, until September 23.
