Collection is available for research.
Ed Metzger and Laya Gelff are based in southern California and have taken both shows to locales across the United States. Metzger began touring as Einstein in 1978 and as Hemingway ten years later. He studied acting with Lee Strasberg and has also appeared in motion pictures and television shows. Hemingway: On the Edge was performed at Boise State University on September 22, 1995.
This collection consists chiefly of reviews and publicity material for Ed Metzger's portrayals of Ernest Hemingway and Albert Einstein in two one-man shows, Hemingway: On the Edge and Einstein: The Practical Bohemian. Both shows were produced by Metzger's wife, Laya Gelff, who also acts as his agent. The newspaper reviews within the collection are in photocopy form.
