Art & Heart: The World of Isaiah Sheffer

A celebration of Isaiah Sheffer’s life and work, intercut with interviews with friends and colleagues, and stage performances. “His voice was like having warm butterscotch poured over your head,” recalls Stephen Colbert. The documentary delves into the life of the man whom many knew only as the host of Selected Shorts on public radio, or the driving force and artistic director of Symphony Space, or the originator of Bloomsday on Broadway, or the comic genius behind the Thalia Follies. Leonard Nimoy remembers Isaiah as “endlessly creative.” “This loving cinematic tribute is well-deserved.” Hollywood Reporter. Special Guest: Director Catherine Tambini , Frank
