WE GRIND OUR
OWN MEAT!

Burstyn has a reflective moment before he appears.

his own variety series. He ac-
cepted and the show ran from
1978 to 1981. Each month he
made a trek to Holland to tape
the program.
It was this experience that led
him to the Barnum role on
Broadway. He had struck up a
friendship with entertainer
Chita Rivera, a guest on his
show, and she recommended
that Burstyn try for the Barnum
role because actor- Jim Dale was
leaving the musical.
Burstyn auditioned and was
in competition with a lot of
heavy-hitters — Lee Majors,
Paul Michael Glaser and Bobby
Morse. To his surprise, he won
the role.
"What they told me — I sim-
ply did the best audition. I had
the experiences — the years on
stage — to do it."
Burstyn has also co-hosted the
Mery Griffin Show, co-starred
with Jason Robards in the film
Death in Jericho and appeared
in a Variety Royal Command
Performance at London's Pal-
ladium.
He made his Broadway debut
in 1968 in a musical, The Megil-
lah, and in 1970 portrayed at-
torney Roy Cohn in Inquest.
He is an executive board
member of Israel's Variety Club
and a founding member of the
Israeli Union of Performing
Arts.
Despite the successes, there
have been disappointments.

Burstyn regrets the fact that he
never went to college. "It's
something I regret now, but I
always knew I wanted to be an
actor anyway."
His biggest professional dis-
appointment came in 1973. He
had auditioned for the role of
the district attorney on Barney
Miller. An ABC vice president
— Jewish — saw Burstyn's
audition tape, and said he
looked "too Jewish" for the role,
and so' he lost the part, even
though the character was sup-
posed to be Jewish. Eventually
the part was written out of the
series.
But Burstyn has nothing to
worry about. Last year, he was
booked in Australia, Brazil, in
Israel, all over the United
States, in Canada and in the
Bahamas. For Israel Bonds, he
appears all over the country
singing and telling jokes.
On stage, he has a good time,
singing mostly English, Yiddish
and Hebrew songs. He speaks
and sings in eight languages —
English, Yiddish, Spanish,
French, Hebrew, German, Por-
tuguese and Dutch — adding he
can "get along in Italian."
His jokes focus on topical is-
sues, the Israeli government
("The Knesset is a satirical Is-
raeli nightclub in Jerusalem")
and about Jewish life in gen-
eral. A song he sings is Chai,
and he introduces it thus: "Chai
means life. and I'd like to dedi-
