My name is Robert Galinsky. I am a New York theatre artist, playwright, and performer and I have a show running Off Broadway! Ask Me Anything!

My show is called The Bench, A Homeless Love Story and I play 5 characters who are all either homeless or on the fringe, in 1987. The show's characters are based on real people and true stories and the show is a window into their world: poetic, vulgar, joyful and tragic. It is directed by the great film/theatre/tv actor Jay O. Sanders.
