MORRIS "MOE" ROSENBAUM born on Jan 25, 1931, in Brooklyn New York. The second son of Jewish immigrants from Minsk. "Moe" first appeared on stage at the age of 7 and acted for many years in Manhattan's Lower East Side Yiddish Theater as well as performing in musical and comedy revues in the Catskills. Once the ethnic theater venues died out in the early 1960's, Mo went on to perform in a few regional theaters around the tri –state area, playing just about every male role in FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. Mr. Rosenbaum made several appearances as a guest star on TV shows throughout the 60's and early 70's. Kojak, Barney Miller, The Defenders, Columbo etc. This production of Dinner with The Boys brings Mr. Rosenbaum out of a long retirement and back to the stage where he feels he belongs. He is very grateful to Dan Lauria and everyone at NJ Rep for this opportunity.
