Former Harlem Resident And President Bill Clinton Attends Reading At The Neighborhood Playhouse

Former President and Harlem resident Bill Clinton attended a reading of “Waiting for Lefty” at the famed Neighborhood Playhouse.

The former president who had his Clinton Foundation’s office on 125th Street back in the day was at the event to celebrate Sanford Meisner, and his world-renowned “Meisner Technique,” who first directed the play on Broadway, and the return of in-person classes, and the completion of the Phase One building renovation.

His nephew, Tyler Clinton, is a recent graduate from The Neighborhood Playhouse and other alumni included Ian Duff, Cruz Cordero, Allison Mackie, Matt McCoy, Tom Stewart, and Christina Toth, to name a few.
