JEROME COOPERSMITH: ‘The Other Side’
April 14, 2009
Jerome Coopersmith's one-act play "The Other Side" will have its British premiere May 16, 2009, under the auspices of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London. The play, about the actual meeting of Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, was first staged in New York in January, 2008. Jerry and his wife Judy will be in London for rehearsals, performance, and he says, "to teach the actor playing Houdini some simple conjuring tricks," adding quickly that his own magic skills are crude, and derived from such publications as The Boy's Guide To Magic And How To Amaze Your Friends.
