Happy Festivus! Prepare for those Feats of Strength and Airing of Grievances

In honor of Festivus 2019, here is a photo of Jason Alexander (aka George Costanza) when he was at Arkansas Rep in January 2016 to conduct auditions for the play WINDFALL which he directed at the Rep.  He is pictured with Bob Hupp, who was then Producing Artistic Director of Arkansas Rep.

Alexander has continued collaborating with Hupp at Syracuse Stage, where the latter went in 2016.

Little Rock resident Judge Reinhold was not in THAT “Seinfeld” episode, but did star in another iconic epsiode as “The Close Talker.”
