Personal Quote:

If I'm not moved by what happens at the end of this play, then I've completely failed, and so has the play, and so has our production. And if that's the case then there really isn't any reason to want to do it. See more »


In November 2013, Hirsch angered neighbors in his rural Catskill Mountain town in New York with his plans to build a 177-foot-tall wind turbine on his 96-acre property, at a cost of $132,000. See more »
