Personal Quote:

The great actors we had came from actor/manager theaters. Not only did they create a team, they were the generals working with the soldiers. See more »

Trivia:

After being deported in June 2002, Berkoff accused the US authorities of "Post September 11 hysteria". Ironically, shortly afterwards he performed a tribute about 9/11 at the Edinburgh festival fringe. He gave a solo performance entitled "Requiem For Ground Zero" at the Assembly Rooms, where his epic poem lasted for almost an hour. See more »
