This is the official fansite for the incredibly versatile and talented actor Norbert Weisser. Norbert began acting in the theater in the 60’s, then in films and television in the 70’s. Almost every one of Norbert’s roles is featured in this site on a dedicated page.I do not attempt to capture entire films or television episodes in this website. Focus is on Norbert’s role and contribution to the production.
Norbert performed in a special theater piece written and directed by Nina Wise at the Morrison Planetarium in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. All performances were sold out well in advance, and the reviews were spectacular. He portrayed Johannes Kepler in this one man show. Check out the page dedicated to this under the Theater tab where you will see more photos and information about this amazing story. Norbert received standing ovations during his performances.
Comment by theater patron who attended the first performance:"People were crying all around me... such an artistic achievement to move people to tears about the interconnected nature of the universe."
A complete list of Norbert’s movie and television roles can be found on his IMDB page.I had the distinct honor of designing his professional website. Check it out for different features and clips of several of his theater performances.
Beckett 5Norbert just finished performing the title role in Becket’s Krapp’s Last Tape at the Odyssey Theater in LA to rave reviews. All of the Beckett 5 pieces were very well received. See the Latest Ventures page for more photos, reviews and more.
Norbert plays Todd in CHARLES’ STORY, the last play of the epic THE GARY PLAYS by Murray Mednick. Taken as a whole, the six-play series portrays economic and spiritual distress in the contemporary urban wilderness of Los Angeles. An everyman/anti-hero, Gary was hailed by KCRW as “a sort of L.A. Leopold Bloom.” Directed by Guy Zimmerman, the series will be performed at the ATWATER VILLAGE THEATER this May into June.
