Greg Mullavey '55 plays “Robert” in the Geva Theatre production of “Proof.” Written by David Auburn and directed by Mark Cuddy, “Proof” runs until Nov. 17. Proof received the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2001 Tony Award for Best Play. Mullavey has appeared in nearly 100 plays from Alaska to Florida and from Boston to San Diego.
On Broadway, Mullavey starred in “Romantic Comedy” opposite Mia Farrow and in “Rumors” (as Lenny). He has numerous Off-Broadway credits, including last year's “Burnt Piano” opposite Fritz Weaver and Laila Robins and was seen in the national tour of “The Sisters Rosensweig” opposite Nancy Dussault. Among his regional favorites are: “King Lear” (Lear) at Center Stage, “The Price” (Victor) at the Guthrie, “Inherit the Wind” (Clarence Drummond) at Fulton Opera House, “The Merchant of Venice” (Shylock) at Road Theatre Co. and most recently “The Cherry Orchard” (Gayev) opposite Alfred Molina in Los Angeles, where he has been the recipient of six critics awards. Mullavey has more than 200 film and TV credits, from “Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice” and “Bonanza” to “ER” and next spring's film, “Southside,” but he is probably best known as Tom Hartman in the 400 episodes of “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.”
The HWS Club of Rochester is going to see “Proof” Nov. 12, and meet with Mullavey.
