‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ Stage Manager to Speak in Westfield

Thomas Ucciferri, Stage Manager for 'Late Night with Seth Meyers'

The popular Hale Speaker Series will continue Friday, May 19, with a talk by a former Westfield resident who serves as stage manager for “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”

Thomas Ucciferri’s speech, titled “A Look Behind the Camera/Curtain in TV Production,” will provide insights he has gained after 30-plus years in the business.  He also has worked as stage manager on The Rosie O’Donnell Show, Sound of Music Live and Peter Pan Live, and as a camera man for Sesame Street.

The hour-long talk is set to start at 7 p.m. at Westfield Memorial Library, 550 East Broad St.  Because the library has no Friday evening hours, the main entrance will be closed.  Those coming to the Ucciferri talk will enter through the meeting room door near the main parking lot.

Support for the Hale Series comes from grants provided by The Anne and Lee Hale Fund and The Thomas Glasser Foundation, and the talks are hosted by the Friends of Westfield Memorial Library.
