According to David Ellenstein, Producing Artistic Director for North Coast Rep, “We are thrilled to have Dick Enberg and multi-talented actor Cotter Smith associated with North Coast Rep as we present this return.”

McGuire Feb. 9 & 10 only!

January 14, 2015

Check out this awesome show Feb. 9 & 10:

McGuire, written by Dick Enberg, is a one-man show featuring Cotter Smith and directed by Heidi Mueller-Smith.

Those who saw Al McGuire lead the 1977 Marquette basketball team to the national championship knew him to be quite a character. Renowned sportscaster and multiple Emmy Award – winner Dick Enberg shares memories of his long-time colleague and close friend. Mr. Enberg’s play depicts why the philosophy of this uncommonly funny and profound man had such an important and lasting impact on so many.

“Anyone who knew Al McGuire – eccentric basketball sage, national championship coach, collector of toy soldiers and butcher blocks, and king of the self-created kingdom of OingoBoingo Land – would find forgetting him impossible.”
~ New York Times.


February 9 at 7:00 p.m. with post-show reception
February 10 at 7:30 p.m.

Dick Enberg will be at both performances for a talkback.
