"most favorite city," Reiss
now considers Detroit her
home. She had done live
theater; she'd been a traffic
reporter; she'd done public
relations and advertising for
a national radio and record
industry publication. But two
years ago, when her grand-
mother died, she realized the
importance of being near
family. "I decided to pursue
what I wanted to do most, my
acting career, and to go for it
right here."
Living in her folks' home in
West Bloomfield has been
fun, according to Reiss. "So
few people have a chance as
adults to look at their parents
as equals. I'm no longer their
kid. They're my friends.
They're always my best au-
dience. When I win, they win.
When I lose, they lose. When
I lived on my own, my strug-
gles were my own."
Reiss concedes that she has
"a lot of fine competition" in
Detroit. "We have some ex-
cellent theater in this
city"
Voice-overs, a specialty
Reiss has perfected, take
three forms: straight reads,
narrations and character
reads, the category she most
enjoys. "I become any type of
strange or imaginary
character I'm supposed to
create to fulfill a particular
image."

Comedy is also a favorite
medium. She grew up on
Lucille Ball and Carol
Burnett, although Reiss con-
_ tends that the majority of in-
teresting, humorous roles are
still written for men. "The
ability to look at yourself and
laugh at yourself is so impor-
tant." Her all-time favorite
comedienne is Bette Midler.
"She's outrageous; she's
outspoken; she's flashy."
Another broadcast skill
Reiss has perfected is called
"The Ear." A script is taped.
The actor uses a molded ear-
piece and learns to repeat
whatever is heard seconds
later in a natural manner. It
is an option to reading a
script on a tele-prompter or
memorizing a script. "To do it
fluently is tough."
Generally outspoken,
Reiss keeps two topics "off the
record" — her age and her
social life: "Producers legally
can't discriminate by age, but
they try to categorize you:'
On the subject of special
male friends, she says, with a
broad smile, "You won't get
that out of me."
Reiss' career goal? To
have her own television show.
"I'd like to be the first female
Johnny Carson. I find a sense
of humor in everything I do,
but if I could only sing like
Barbra Streisand, I'd have it
all wrapped up." ❑

Mother-Daughter Duo
To Entertain At Center

Yiddish theater actress
Fraydele Oysher and her
daughter, singer and impres-
sionist Marilyn Michaels, will
make their first appearance
together in the Detroit area
on Feb. 27 at 8 p.m. for the
Jewish Community Center's
"Let Us Entertain You"
series at the Maple/Drake
Center.
Oysher has been perform-
ing since the age of five and
is the descendant of rabbis
and cantors.
Michaels is a multi-faceted
performer. She began by sing-
ing in shows with her mother
and later in the choir as a
soloist with her father, Harold
Sternberg, the Metropolitan
Opera's basso. Her uncle was
the renowned cantor and ac-
tor Moishe Oysher.
During the 1970s, she was
featured on the TV program
Copy Cats. She has done
numerous shows, including
Broadway, Las Vegas and
television. She also has done
TV commercials and records.
The program will feature
songs in both Yiddish and
English.
