**** ANNOUNCING:  “JONATHAN FRID: AN ACTOR’S CURIOUS JOURNEY” COMMEMORATIVE EDITION BOOK – NOW AVAILABLE

 

Author / Interviewer / Researcher Malia Howard asks SG to announce:

 

“At long last it's back, now in my Commemorative Edition of JONATHAN FRID: AN ACTOR’S CURIOUS JOURNEY. This is the first time I've offered this book in print form in over 10 years.” She appreciates that DS fans really enjoyed the initial edition and many were “asking me to do this. I finally got all the work done that was required” and now the book is available again.

 

The original text is expanded and updated with information and photos in this newly-revised edition’s 300 full-size perfect-bound pages.

 

This fully-detailed book explores Jonathan’s life: Schooling, training, a range of productions, projects, his time on DS, stage and other appearances since DS, and more. It includes rare photos, publicity items, and much more, selected by Jonathan and Malia together from Jonathan’s own personal collection.

 

Malia explains: “I started working directly with Jonathan in early 1999. We talked and he reviewed drafts all the way up to publication in 2001.” They thoroughly discussed, examined, and reviewed his personal memories, photographs, publicity materials, and more across his life and career. The resulting book examined DS and his other work in TV, film, theater, and especially his own creative, live-onstage one-man Readers Theatre presentations.

 

Jonathan performed these wonderfully unique, themed programs across the US and parts of Canada, from the mid-1980s to early 2000s. Each distinctive program created specific characters, settings, themes, emotions, and moods. He used only the written words and his own talents, experiences, perceptions, background, voice ranges, and body language. Alone on stage with just the program text on a stand in front of him, he explored history, humanity and life through literary excerpts ranging from the Bible through classic and current literature as well as his own insightful observations. The selections were personal, serious, humorous, and endlessly thought-provoking. They showcased Jonathan’s natural skills as an actor, storyteller, director, and human being

 

The book is $35 + shipping. It is available exclusively from lulu.com:

 

http://www.lulu.com/shop/malia-howard/jonathan-frid-an-actors-curious-journey-

commemorative-edition/paperback/product-23004565.html

 

Lulu offers a range of shipping options from a low of $3.99 (delivery in 2-6 business days) to $36.99 (delivery in 1 day). Once ordered, shipping is in 3-5 days. 

 

Official Description:

“JONATHAN FRID: AN ACTOR’S CURIOUS JOURNEY”: “Career biography of actor Jonathan Frid. This classically trained actor enjoyed a distinguished career on stage, in television and on film. He became American television's first matinee idol due to his spellbinding portrayal of ‘Barnabas Collins’ on ABC-TV's ‘Dark Shadows’ in the late 1960s. He also enjoyed a highly successful run as the evil brother, ‘Jonathan’, in the national touring company of ‘Arsenic & Old Lace’ in the late 1980s. In the latter stages of his career, he created a series of Reader's Theatre One-Man-Shows that toured the U.S. from coast to coast.

 

“Frid mesmerized audiences with his unique gift for interpreting the nuances of a wide array of characters, all while relying only on his own voice, facial expressions and his remarkable ability to inspire the imagination of his audiences. He viewed this part of his career as the most satisfying, as it allowed him to play numerous characters covering dark comedy, classic horror and the horrors of the mind.”

 

ShadowGram sadly remembers that Jonathan died “peacefully in his sleep” at age 87 on April 14, 2012, at a hospital in his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

 

ShadowGram Update #261 (April 19, 2012) reported accurate information of his passing that was provided specifically, exclusively, and directly to ShadowGram by his family members and associates.

 

Fans interested in that ShadowGram Online Update #261 can request a copy be sent to them by writing directly to Marcy Robin at:  ShadowGram@aol.com
