Howard Raik–A Most Entertaining Man

My friend Howard Raik started acting in roles at various theater companies throughout the Chicago area around eight or nine years. Despite still working full-time at the business he owns, Howard continues to get interesting and challenging roles for an older actor. I’ve seen him perform about a half a dozen times, and it’s always a pleasure watching him act. Two of my favorite roles that he has played were Morrie in Tuesdays with Morrie and Doctor Manette in  A Tale of Two Cities.

Howard will soon be performing in a play called Over the River and Through the Woods at the James Downing Theater, located at 6740 N. Oliphant in Chicago’s Edison Park neighborhood. The play is described as “a story of love, laughter and lasagna,” and Howard plays the Italian American grandfather. It starts October 8 and runs through October 23; Saturday night performances start at 7:30. Sunday matinees are are 1:30. If you would like more information, please call 224-725-3696
