Armin Shimerman (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Quark) was so impressed after seeing The Seafarer on Broadway several years ago, he called his agent to have the agent find a production of the play in which Shimerman could appear.
“I was just blown away by it,” explained Shimerman. “It’s wonderfully humorous, with hints of the supernatural and a theme of redemption. I told my agent that I wanted to do this show and asked him to find me a production. I’d never done that before. But I knew this was something that I had to do. This show is just so superbly written.”
