Brian Epstein at his Saville Theatre I've just returned from a first round of serious U.K. casting sessions where I met numerous actors interested in the role of Brian Epstein. A second-round process will take place in November, and I fully expect we will have the lead cast by the end of this year!

HALP! :)

I stumbled across this picture somewhere, and I can't figure out if it's Brian in the picture with John, or someone else who sits incredibly effeminently and stares at John as if he is the greatest thing since sliced bread.....  hopefully someone knows.... I am not sure. I look at it once and think, "Oh, that's definitely Brian, just looking bulkier and his hair's not done" and then other times, I am just like, "WTF? That doesn't look a thing LIKE Eppy!" And I just flip-flop back and forth, fighting with it... hoping one of you guys can SOLVE MY SORROWS and bring peace to my heart.. lol. Thanks for any help you can provide, I very much appreciate it! 


"Any member of the Jewish community" (Newspaper clippings 4)

"Epstein Withdraws From Passion Play Following Censure"
New York Times, November 21, 1966.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews adopted a resolution strongly condemning "any member of the Jewish community who in any way and for any consideration" is associated with the proposed production in Britain of the Oberammergau Passion Play.

Tonight, on the heels of this condemnation by the authoritative organization of British Jewry, a statement came from NEMS Enterprises, Ltd., that it was no longer acting as the agent for the production of an adaptation of the play in Britain and the United States.

The entrepreneurs Philip Solomons, Vic Lewis and Brian Epstein, who are all Jewish, are connected with NEMS Enterprises. Mr Epstein, manager of the Beatles, said tonight that he would withdraw totally. Under no circumstances, he said, would he or his organization wish to give offense to Jewish communities here or elsewhere in the world.


The resolution of the Board of Deputies of British Jews followed a call by the American Jewish Congress on Thursday for a world boycott of the Passion Play.
