The Invisible Theatre will present the World Premiere Staged Reading of CLOUDS IN HEAVEN, starring TV, theatre and film star Kathy Garver and Tucson’s own Jack Neubeck.  CLOUDS IN HEAVEN tells the story of Laura Bridgman, the first deaf, mute and

blind girl to learn language in the mid 19th century and the man who discovered her, Dr. Samuel Howe. 

This evocative and poetic play is drawn from memoirs, diaries and personal recollections.


Most fondly remembered for her starring role as “Cissy” in the long running CBS prime time television hit, Family Affair, Kathy Garver has garnered critical acclaim in movies, stage, radio, voice over animation and audio book narration.  Her voice has been heard in Apollo 13 (which was awarded the Academy Award for Sound), Ransom, Backdraft and Jingle all the Way – all directed by Ron Howard.  Her Beatrix Potter tapes have sold over a million copies. Ms. Garver has also won two Audie Awards, one for her narration of The World’s Shortest Stories, the other in 2004 for her direction of Amy Tan in “The Opposite of Fate, read by the author.  Today Kathy

is an accomplished and versatile actress, appearing in such films as Sweet November, The Princess Diaries, Seizing Me, Black August and Held Together and has electrified the talk show circuit entertaining audiences with tales of her life long career in show business.


After 20 years and 2500 performances on Broadway, including the original companies of EVITA and LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, Jack Neubeck moved to Tucson in 1986 and continues to perform throughout the community. One of his favorite performances is ONCE AND FOREVER - a musical tribute to Irving Berlin, which was conceived and written with Susan Claassen and Jeff Haskell.  His most recent production was playing the part of Howard Liszt in MESHUGGAH-NUNS!


Harry Clark, cellist and playwright, has been described by the NY Times as “a first rate cellist, the sort who can make his instrument interesting for anybody.”  As a playwright, his work was recently extolled as “an extraordinary interweaving of music and biography…his work has passion, joy and mystery exhibiting exceptional unity and sensitivity,” (Hartford Courant) and the Arizona Daily Star states:  “From his mighty pen he has inked a classical music program that’s both inviting and exhilarating for the learned and ignorant ear alike.”  As playwright, Mr. Clark has had the great fortune to create original work for such luminaries as Jill Clayburgh, Theodore Bikel, Edward Herrmann, Barbara Feldon, Hayley Mills, Harvey Fierstein, Sandy Duncan, Michael Learned, Lynn Redgrave and more.  Some of the twenty-five Portraits appear on CD’s (sold on, and are presented throughout America on Public Radio International.  Currently, Clark is collaborating with renowned composer Libby Larsen on an original musical theatre piece for the 2005/06 season, Mesmeric Mozart.


CLOUDS IN HEAVEN is produced by Susan Claassen and presented, in part, through the generous support of Alexandra Jupin and John Bean and the Tucson Pima Arts Council.
