Howard Elson is excited to be making his Tantrum Theater debut! It is NOT, however, his Ohio debut, as he was “Professor Baseball” for three Major League Baseball All Star Fan Fests and TV’s This Week in Baseball including the All Star game in Cleveland in 1997. Howard sang himself through college and dental school…yes, dental school…performing in New York City nightclubs and Catskill Mountain (Borscht Belt) resorts. In his adopted hometown of Pittsburgh, Howard has starred thrice as Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof and performed leading roles in professional productions of Evita, Chicago, A Little Night Music, Oliver!, Lion in Winter, 1776, A Funny Thing Happened…Forum, Come Blow Your Horn, Jacques Brel…, She Loves Me, Lend Me a Tenor, and took it all off for The Full Monty. Howard enjoys basking in reflected glory and has shared the stage with such great Broadway performers as Billy Porter, Kathleen Marshall, Karen Prunzik, Lenora Nemetz, Randy Graff, Judith Blazer, and the great character actor, Nehemiah Persoff. He is just as thrilled to be sharing the stage with this wonderful cast! Howard’s also traveled all around the United States and Canada performing his show for dental conventions…yes, dental conventions, “Dr. Howard Elson, A Dentist’s Life” His CD can be found on his website, www.thedentalshow.com. Baseball has been one of Howard’s lifelong passions. In Pittsburgh, he was an award winning sports commentator and hosted the weekend sports talk shows, Sports Saturday and Sports Sunday on KDKA radio. Howard and his wife Robin, a CPA, have two children and four gorgeous grandchildren. A semi-retired pediatric dentist, Dr. Elson is thrilled to be able to tour, travel and rehearse during the day, and is a proud member of Actor’s Equity and the American Dental Association.
