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.
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.”
The Gary Plays run May 4 through June 10 with performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 12 p.m.; 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. There is a link on the Latest Ventures page where you can purchase tickets and see more photos. Be sure to look for the special discount coupon!
