Carl Weintraub


Carl is happy to be back at the Odyssey after a thirty-eight year hiatus, during which he performed on such stages as the Mark Taper Forum, LATC, The Cast, The Freemont Center Theatre, The Hudson, TheatreWorks in Palo Alto, plus numerous television, and a few movies. Carl studied with the venerable Lou Palter and began his acting career at San Diego’s The Old Globe Theatre in 1973. He is the founder and artistic director of We Tell Stories theatre for young audiences, and is the only artist (as opposed to educator) to have received the BRAVO Award, presented by the L.A. Music Center, honoring Outstanding Arts Education. As a traveling storyteller, Carl was the first to perform on the stages of the Skirball Museum and The Getty Center. He currently produces BackStory, a bi-monthly storytelling event at the Victory Theatre in Burbank.
