Monday Morning Man: David Pevsner!
One day this handsome actor is delivering dire medical news to Lindsay Lohan, on another he’s an old dog looking for new tricks and he’s soon to be a musical comedy whore!
Talk about versatility!
He’s David Pevsner and he’s one of the busiest openly gay actors in LA. He appeared in such recent movies as: Joshua Tree 1951: A Portrait of James Dean; Scrooge & Marley; and Role/Play and did recent guest spots on Modern Family and Grey’s Anatomy.
David is also one of the stars of the wonderful web series Old Dogs & New Tricks which just wrapped its second season.
Then there’s Liz & Dick, the campy Lifetime movie in which Lohan “portrayed” Elizabeth Taylor. David appeared in my favorite scene in the movie as a doctor who walks into Miss Taylor’s hospital room and, managing to keep a straight face, says: “Listen, I’m not saying it’s colon cancer, but we need to run more tests.”
David has found much better material on the stage appearing in Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway and the off-Broadway shows When Pigs Fly and Party. He was also one of the writers of the hit review Naked Boys Singing.
And now this: On Friday night (May 17), David’s one-man show Musical Comedy Whore has its world premiere at The Desert Rose Playhouse in the Palm Springs area.
It’s said to be a deeply personal show with a lot of witty showtunes and I hope to catch it soon! Here is a LINK for tickets and more information.
