i came to know USVAA in 2006, when an organization of which i was a member, Los Angeles Classical Theatre Lab partnered with USVAA to produce a production of Bertolt Brecht's ARTURO UI with me playing UI. Leaving aside the merits of the production itself (which for me was transformative), our partnership with USVAA was an endeavor of which I was enormously proud. Keith proved time and again to be an artist of integrity, compassion and commitment with a theatre skill set deep and wide. I spend much of my time in NYC these days but take the opportunity to attend LAAVA events and performances when I am back in LA. I am always impressed by the informed, profoundly personal and enlightening point of view the members of the Veterans Artists Alliance bring to their work, particularly Shakespeare's tragedies of war and statesmanship. Some of the most moving theatre I've experienced in the past decade (and I see a lot of theatre all over the English-speaking world) has been presented by this fine group of theatre artists and veterans.- Nick Salamone, actor, playwright, current New York Classical Theatre board member.
