Weston's 'Rappaport'
Role 'Most Challenging'

VICTORIA BELYEU DIAZ

Alert to Parents!

gh

Onstage at the Birmingham Theater, veteran actor Jack Weston is
playing the most difficult role of his career.

When we ask you to please
recognize the signs of cystic
fibrosis and other lung-
damaging diseases, we're not
trying to alarm you.
Look at it this way. If your
child does NOT have C F or
another serious lung-damaging
disease, he has nothing to lose
by checking with a doctor, or
taking a simple diagnostic test.
If your child DOES have
C F, or another 'condition that
could damage his lungs, he has
a lot to lose by not having the
chance for early diagnosis and
prompt effective medical care.
So, when you look at it like
that...we hope you'll look at
this and learn the following:

SIGNS OF LUNG-DAMAGING
DISEASE

1. Recurrent wheezing
2. Persistent coughing/excessive
mucus
3. Pneumonia more than once
4. Excessive appetite/poor weight gain
5. Clubbing (enlargement of fingertips)
Cystic fibrosis signs also may include:
salty taste of the skin; persistent, bulky
diarrhea; nasal polyps.

ixty-three-year-old
Jack Weston has been
acting professionally
now for almost 40 years.
Beginning his career in 1950
with a role on Broadway in a
play called Season in the Sun,
the bearish actor with a voice
that sounds like something
between a growl and a giggle
has since appeared. in
countless stage, movie, and
television roles.
Usually cast in comedy
roles (such as Stewpot in
South Pacific, or Doris Day's
cab driver/baby-sitter in
Please Don't Eat the Dasies),
he's also played parts like the
crook-for-hire, opposite Steve
McQueen, in The Thomas
Crown Affair, and a sinister
villain in Wait Until Dark,
with Audrey Hepburn.
Weston's acting career also
includes many TV credits. He
appeared in two series, "Rod
Brown of the Rocket Ranger"
and "The Hathaways." He
also has had roles in "The
Twilight Zone," "Playhouse
90," "U.S. Steel Hour,"
"Gunsmoke" and "The Un-
touchables."
Ask him what's been the
most challenging role of his
career, though, and he'll
I quickly tell you it's the one

he's doing right now at the
Birmingham Theater — that
of the aging, Jewish tale-
spinner, Nat, in Herb Gard-
ner's comedy-drama, I'm Not
Rappaport.
Gardner's Tony Award-
winning play, set in present-
day New York, focuses on the
fiery old Socialist, Nat, and
his relationship with Midge,
another elderly man he meets
on a bench in a corner of Cen-
tral Park.
"In a way, I see Rappaport
as a love story between these
two men, although it's not
sexual,of course," says
Weston. "Their friendship is
very important. They need
each other. I think that's
what the play is really about
— need.
"When they asked me if I
wanted to do it, I told them to
send (the script) over and I'd
read it," he says. "But, when
I read it, I thought I could
never do it — especially in the
short amount of time we had
for rehearsal. Ten days!
Eighty-two pages!
"Then, they convinced me,"
he adds, smiling, "with
money."
"It's hard, though, really
hard. Every night, before you
go on, you get kinda knotted
up, thinking 'How am I going
to push that play tonight?'
Then, when you go on,it's like
