How I Discovered Al Pacino!

By Jay Weston.

Actor Al Pacino was a Kennedy Center honoree in 2016, and the ceremony was telecast with Al seated beside President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.

If you caught the show, you may have noted that Pacino’s first Broadway appearance was in a play which I produced, “Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?” for which he won The Tony Award. 

For the first time, I will tell you the true story of how he began his amazing career.

It was late December of 1968 that at the urging of manager Martin Bregman, I went to a small off-off-Broadway theater in an abandoned building in downtown Manhattan to see a play called “An Indian Takes the Bronx”.
