Larry Ferber, the cultural arts director at the Simon Family JCC before moving into semi-retirement in Florida, is aiming to entertain Tidewater audiences as the second of the Performing Arts at the J Series.

Enjoy stories about Frank Sinatra, Bette Davis, Sir Laurence Olivier, and Bette Midler–just a few of the stars you will meet backstage and onstage in Larry’s “COULD THEY TALK!” lecture peppered with video clips and anecdotes that give an inside look at the TV industry. Ferber, a three-time Emmy nominee, is a 30-year television veteran who has produced, executive produced, and consulted in all forms of broadcast media, including network TV, syndication, cable, webcasting, and home shopping.

Early in his career, Ferber worked with Regis Philbin in local Los Angeles television. Dividing his time between Los Angeles and New York, he worked on the top-rated daytime television talk shows of the 1970s–2000s including Dinah Shore, Mike Douglas, Sally Jessy Raphael, and Joan Rivers. He has been profiled in USA TODAY, and quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and TV Guide.

The show is recommended for ages 21 and older. Cash bar is available, 7–8pm, and a dessert reception follows the presentation.

Tickets are available for purchase online, by calling 321-2338 or at the JCC Front Desk.

Parents who are JCC members: There’s a Kids Night Out on March 8, 6-10 pm. Drop little ones off and enjoy the show. Call 321-2338 to sign up.
