Curious Jr.: Just Act Natural

Ruchama Schnaidman

A Rabbi. A villain. A singer. A drunk. Can one person have all of these titles? Sure, if your name is Kuppy Elbogen and you’re a professional actor and singer. What is life as an actor like? Jr. spoke to Kuppy Elbogen to find out.

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Jr.: Hi, Kuppy. Can you tell us about your acting career? What exactly do you do?

K: Actually I act and sing. I’ve played the main role in many plays, both on stage and for DVDs and CDs, and I sing at weddings and on albums. I’ve also been involved in writing and directing plays for huge audiences.

Jr.: Sounds like an exciting job. When and how did you get started?

K: I’ve been acting since I was very young. Just after my bar mitzvah I starred in a play in camp. The directors chose me for the part because I knew how to sing well, but soon we all realized that I was an actor as well.
