The managing director of the Famous Door Theatre Company, Larry Neumann Jr., enjoyed a protracted and successful career in the entertainment industry.
The prototypical Chicago theater actor appeared in movies including Slice (1993), Stir of Echoes (1999), Sirens (1993), and Stranger Than Fiction (2006). (1993). But his stage performances are what have made him most well-known. In the middle of the 1980s, Neumann collaborated with Blind Parrot Productions and New Crimes Productions.
The devoted actor killed himself on stage while playing the title role in Charles Marowitz’s production of Artaud at Rodez in 1986. He was then nailed into a coffin after the performance.
In 1988, Neumann played Iago in the Chicago Shakespeare Company’s production of Othello, following his well-deservedly acclaimed performance at Rodez. In 1995, he participated in the one-man performance Judgement.
Whether playing a Shakespearean tragedy or a regular Chestnut Seller in the annual Goodman Theatre production of A Christmas Carol, Neumann was excellent in every role.
In Eric Overmyer’s monologue, The Dalai Lama Goes Three for Four, from 1996, he played the Dalai Lama. His portrayal of Richard Nickel in the They All Fall Down production by the Lookingglass Theatre in 2001 was probably his most illustrious performance. Additionally, Larry Neumann Jr. has appeared in a few commercials.
Additionally, he made appearances in the plays The Puppetmaster of Lodz by Writers Theatre, Underneath the Lintel by Noble Fool Theatricals, and The Madness of Edgar Allan Poe by First Folio Theatre. Chicago theaters are saddened by his premature death, but audiences will remember his performances for a very long time.
