This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy® pays tribute to a very special person.
We were saddened to learn this week that our friend, Charles Berliner, has passed away.
A veteran of set and costume design for film, television and theater, Mr. Berliner spent more than four decades in show business, working on some of the most acclaimed productions of his time, as well as serving for 28 years as the Western Regional Representative of the legendary National Entertainment Industry Union, United Scenic Artists, Local USA 829, IATSE.
Coming from an entertainment family, Mr. Berliner followed his mother, a concert pianist at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco as well as a Broadway singer and his aunt, a vaudeville performer who shared the stage with Gracie Allen into show business, getting his start as a dancer in San Francisco. He became interested in stage design at the tender age of 10, after seeing the original stage production of My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. MORE>>>>
