Zephyr Theatre
7456 Melrose Ave. Hollywood

Shelter Transport Animal Rescue Team (START) in association with Pacific Resident Theatre presents writer/performer Steve Spiro’s funny, refreshing and highly theatrical solo show, based on true events. A young Jewish boy in London transforms himself, through sheer force of will (and plenty of chutzpah) from bullied underdog to martial artist, boxer, community leader and animal rights activist. All proceeds from the production will benefit START Rescue as well as selected animal charities and anti-bullying groups.

Broadway World - Recommended

"...I found myself constantly pulled into his many trials and tribulations as they were so emotionally charged and heartfelt, especially when he doubted his own ability to make choices in life to take him on another path to greater success. Fear and confusion are treacherous enemies that keep us from taking that first step into new opportunities, and Spiro expertly shares his insight into what it took, often even surprising himself, to find a better way to live his life successfully. And just wait until you realize who the "Jen" was he met at the gym and then offered her audition advice after booking his first commercial for Solar Flex!"

Stage and Cinema - Highly Recommended

"...There are many reasons to see writer/performer Steve Spiro’s entertaining and touching one man show, a powerful and emotional true story now playing at the Zephyr Theatre. Nicely shaped by director Ann Bronston, Spiro brings his childhood and subsequent years to life in a palpable way as he morphs from underdog to the inspirational person he is today. In a riveting performance, he convincingly lays bare how his life was formed by fortitude and self-regard."

Will Call - Highly Recommended

"...Not only will you be supporting a wonderful cause, START an animal rescue operation but you will be rewarded by eighty minutes of talent in motion. Steve Spiro narrates his life story in a way that will have you open mouthed at his versatility as he creates dozens of characters from his past, with only his voice, body language, facial expressions and attitude. Costume changes consist of a few different T-shirts."
