Actor and SUNY New Paltz Grad to Visit the Campus
NEW PALTZ -- Actor Ted Koch, a 1986 graduate of SUNY New Paltz, will visit the university on Thursday, November 11. Koch is currently appearing in Tony award- winning production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman.
This much-acclaimed Broadway revival features Brian Dennehy in the role of Willie Loman. Koch portrays Loman's son, Happy. Earlier this year, a New York Times reviewer proclaimed, "Mr. Koch's Happy is just about perfect."
The revival of Death of a Salesman was originally produced, in 1998, in Chicago where it played at the Goodman Theatre. Koch has been working in theater in Chicago since his graduation from New Paltz.
The informal question and answer session with Koch will be held in McKenna Theatre at 5 p.m. It is open to the public.
Located in the heart of a dynamic college town, 90 minutes from metropolitan New York City, the State University of New York at New Paltz is a highly selective college of about 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
One of the most well-regarded public colleges in the nation, New Paltz delivers an extraordinary number of majors in Business, Liberal Arts, Sciences, Engineering, Fine and Performing Arts and Education.
New Paltz embraces its culture as a community where talented and independent minded people from around the world create close personal links with real scholars and artists who love to teach.
