Writer/performer Sid Ross is "quite a talented storyteller" whose style channels the "strangeness, yet normalcy, of Cosmo Kramer and Jerry Seinfeld." -- Shoshana Roberts, theasy.com
Sid Ross's solo piece Becoming OCD is now touring and has been praised by audiences for its "strong writing, insightful humor, [and] great showmanship" (James 6252, show-score.com). It premiered in 2016 at the 20th annual New York International Fringe Festival, will next be seen at the Chicago Fringe Festival in August, and at the United Solo Festival, an annual international festival featuring one-person shows, in September 18. (Tickets available here.) Sid's last full-length play, A Feeling of Family, about a dysfunctional but "enormously entertaining" family whose "dynamics during ...therapy sessions are beautifully, devastatingly scripted by Ross" (Megan Grumbling, Providence Phoenix), premiered in 2006 at the Lanyard Theater in Bath, ME.
Other plays include Collisionville (Workshop, 78th Street Theater Lab, New York, NY); Kangaroo Days (Grove Street Playhouse, New York, NY); White Crimes (MCC reading, New York, NY); and a one-act, An Affair of the Mind (New York University).
His new piece White Man's Burden, about growing up white, Jewish and OCD in America, is expected to premiere in 2019. Sid lives in Long Island City, NY, with his wife, artist Lori Sanford-Ross, and their daughter Rachel.
