A Tribute to Kevin Geer

Filed under: Blogs,News Flash — Tags: — @ 11:00 pm

The 52nd Street Project mourns the loss of Kevin Geer. He was a great friend of ours, a tireless volunteer, and an off-the-charts Playmaking actor. Over the course of 18 years, he played, among other things: a female contestant (in a blonde rubber wig) on a game show hosted by a giraffe (Oliver Platt); a child who was also a Mexican wrestler carrying a speaking puppet of himself, lost in the woods with a deer (Edie Falco); and in two boxing plays, he was in the first a boxer in love with a dancer (Nancy Giles), in the second play, straight out of Playhouse 90, he played a washed-up trainer working with a young boxer (Armando Riesco). All of them were, as you might guess, unforgettable- wildly funny, deeply felt and fully realized. Needless to say, we will miss him very much. If we had a Hall of Fame, he’d be in on the first ballot.
