Ira Gilman

Ira with Grace DiBatista and the cast of Fiddler on the Roof, 1987.

My favorite Ira movement involved Caren Chanley Golon teaching Ira a dance sequence to Mame during the Lighting Concert in 1994. Ira kept saying he had two left feet but Caren made him dance like Fred Astaire!

Ira sang and acted in over 50 SLOC shows since 1972, including portraying Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof at Proctor’s Theater in 1987. He also served on the Board of Directors, and was a recipient of the Etta Moore Founder’s Award in 1996.
