Writing for Us
While in a bow to practicality, Simon studied accounting and business law at Pace College, his heart always belonged to the theater. Even as he attempted to master the laws of debits and credits, he also studied acting and performed at the famed The New York Dramatic Workshop. During a stint of working for producer Saint Subber and passing the SEC/NASD exam he saw his name on a marquee for the first time, as associate p roducer of Gore Vidal's Weekend at the Broadhurst Theater in 1968. A year later he produced an Off-Broadway show under his own aegis --- Frank Gagliano's City Scene starring Raul Julia, Michael Douglas and Lenny Baker. Finding his talents better suited to journalism than producing, Simon began writing theater criticism and features, a calling he pursues expertly and enthusiastically to this day.
Simon is currently the President of the Outer Critics Circle. The theater bug has also bitten one of the Saltzman's two children, their daughter Alice who teaches the Stella Adler acting technique to NYU students. (Son James is Manager of Digital Media Service, University of N. Carolina School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, N.C. ) and Son Alex and Alice's son Ben have yet to make career choices.
