Actor Daniel Stern Makes Musical Debut Tonight

Daniel Stern in "Home Alone"

Film actor Daniel Stern, best known to youths of my generation and our long-suffering parents as the taller of the Wet Bandits from Home Alone, will perform tomorrow night along with Fruition String Band, Leonard Mynx and Never Strangers. The concert benefits Portland Playhouse, as part of that company's "No PA in NoPo" series. Stern, who moonlights as a stage director, cattle rancher and sculptor when he's not on set, is in Portland directing David Mamet's American Buffalo for Third Rail Rep. Brian Weaver, Portland Playhouse's artistic director and a member of the American Buffalo cast, says he believes the concert will be Stern's first-ever public performance as a guitar player. "When he saw Fiction he noticed the music series in the program and asked if he could play," Weaver told WW. "He's always been a guitar player and wanted to give performing a go."

Portland Playhouse, 602 NE Prescott St., 488-5822. 7:30 pm Saturday, Jan. 9. $6. All ages.
