Heath LAMBERTS, Actor: 1941-2005
Performer who possessed a genius for comedy won a string of Canadian theatre awards but was denied greatness by the curse of unpredictability and by a set of conflicting insecurities, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, March 5, 2005 - Page S9
A short rotund man with a genius for comedy, Heath LAMBERT also had a predisposition for depression. His life was often an emotional roller coaster. He achieved fame as Cyrano de Bergerac at the Shaw Festival, combatted alcoholism and found romance at the stage door in his mid-50s, only to be diagnosed with cancer two years after meeting the love of his life.
"His greatest strength was being funny, that was hismétier, his force," said actress Martha HENRY. " But the humour doesn't exist, and this is true of the great Russian clowns as well, without a huge well of tragedy and feelings of loss and betrayal. Heath always felt he didn't fit in anywhere and that was a source of great anguish for him. On the other hand," she added thoughtfully, "it was endless food for his gifts."
"He swung between two poles in his life. One was charming and helpful and totally generous and the other was quite mean and very self-centred," said director Christopher NEWTON. "He could have been one of the greats, but he had this flaw that made him unpredictable."
Heath LAMBERTS was born James LANGCASTER in the Spadina and College area of Toronto in the early days of the Second World War. His youngest brother, John, a firefighter, remembers Jimmy "as always leading me and teaching me and being here to help me in a heartbeat."
School was a struggle, with Jimmy being held back and finally pushed along from one grade to another. After Huron Street Public School, he enrolled in an art program at nearby Central Technical School but quit after a couple of years to try acting full time. " 'Go, and you'll end up selling fish in Kensington Market,' " his brother remembers the teachers saying. "They had no idea of his potential."
What they didn't seem to realize was that Jimmy was probably dyslexic and prone to depression, and his troublesomeness was likely a result of his frustration. As a teenager he joined the 48th Highlanders, training on weekends and summers, an affiliation he treasured for the rest of his life.
As a boy soprano, he appeared as part of the chorus in a couple of Canadian Opera Company productions. Later, he performed in summer stock at Vineland in the Niagara Peninsula and in at least one play for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. That's where he met actress Martha HENRY in the early fall of 1960, when he was 18.
They were having a drink after rehearsal one day when Jimmy asked what she would think if he adopted Heath LAMBERTS as a stage name. She started to laugh and then she realized he was absolutely serious. Apparently, Jimmy and his good friend, actor Colin FOX, were interested in numerology and they had sent the date and time of their births to a company that had translated the data into lists of first and last names, any of which could be conjoined to reflect their "birth paths."
Ms. HENRY and Mr. LAMBERTS had been accepted that same year into the inaugural class of the National Theatre School in Montreal. Welsh actor Powys Thomas, who was the first principal of the National Theatre School, "was incredibly intuitive and he would have seen something in Heath that possibly nobody else had ever seen," said Ms. HENRY.
From the beginning, at the National Theatre School, however, Mr. Thomas and the other students recognized Mr. LAMBERTS as the king of improvisation. "I don't think anyone had ever said that he was brilliant before," commented Ms. HENRY, adding that it was incredibly exciting "to see the blossoming of a creative being." She still remembers Mr. LAMBERTS doing an improvisation derived from Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard. He was given the tutor Trofimov to play as he is awaiting the return of Madame Ranevsky from Moscow.
The scene opened with Mr. LAMBERTS lying asleep on a cot with his boots off. He bolted upright when he heard Mme. Ranevsky's carriage approach, began looking around for his boots and then, as if in a daze, went over to a chalk board and wrote something in Cyrillic letters. He then found the other boot and went rushing out of the room to meet his employer, wearing one boot and holding the other.
"It was as though Heath had been sent some kind of message from God," she said of the effect. "Heath couldn't write English, never mind Cyrillic. I have no idea where this came from. He did things like this constantly in the theatre school, things that made us laugh, of course, but that also made us sit back in wonder."
After Mr. LAMBERTS graduated from the National Theatre School in 1963, he was hired by John Hirsch, founding director of the Manitoba Theatre Centre, as a charter member of the Manitoba Theatre Centre's Young Company. He made his debut at the Stratford Festival in 1964, winning a Tyrone Guthrie award in his first season and again two years later. He appeared regularly at Stratford in the 1960s, playing in Love's Labour's Lost, Twelfth Night, Falstaff and Richard II, among other productions.
Christopher NEWTON, emeritus artistic director of the Shaw Festival, had a complicated relationship with Mr. LAMBERTS dating back to Stratford in the mid-1960s. Mr. LAMBERTS was an unpleasant drunk, according to Mr. NEWTON, but when he sobered up and joined Alcoholics Anonymous in the early 1980s, all his insecurities were still there. Although he could be generous and kind, he tended to turn on his fellow performers by belittling them as they came off stage and even undermining them during a performance, according to Mr. NEWTON. The terrible thing, he continued, was that you couldn't predict when his unpleasant side was going to "click in."
Mr. NEWTON hired Mr. LAMBERTS to play the title role in Tartuffe at the Vancouver Playhouse in the 1970s. He came out and stayed for three years with the company, of which Mr. NEWTON was then the artistic director. He did some wonderful work out in Vancouver, said Mr. NEWTON. He could "ride the scene" with you as an actor, he said, like skiing or surfing where you know the words are going to come and you are just with that other person and doing it. He could also "step out of a part and take the audience with him wherever he wanted to go." The tragedy of Mr. LAMBERTS, though, was that his problems getting along with people worked against his theatrical genius, said Mr. NEWTON.
Returning to Ontario, Mr. LAMBERTS acted at the Shaw Festival for 12 seasons. It was here that he was briefly married to Carole MacOMBER, a stage manager at the festival, and here, too, where he achieved his greatest acclaim as Cyrano in a production of Cyrano de Bergerac directed by Derek GOLDBY in 1982 and 1983. He trusted Mr. GOLDBY as a director, which probably helped him to deliver such a nuanced performance in a role that suited both his talents and his appearance. Mr. LAMBERTS was given an Order of Canada, mainly for his success as Cyrano.
The last time Mr. LAMBERTS and Mr. NEWTON worked together was in a Mirvish production of One for the Pot at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto in 1996. Mr. LAMBERTS won a Dora Mavor Moore award -- his third -- for his performance. "We planned that he should come back and so we looked for traditional British farces that he could do standing on his head. I sent him ideas and he sent me ideas and then suddenly I didn't hear from him and he was appearing on Broadway, without telling me."
The role was Cogsworth, the butler in the Disney production of Beauty and the Beast in 1994 and it marked the beginning of Mr. LAMBERTS's American period. Three years later, on the day after Valentine's Day, he met Pittsburgh quilter Louise SILK in New York. He was performing as the mute King Sextimus in Once Upon a Mattress with Sarah Jessica Parker at the Broadhurst Theatre on Broadway.
Ms. SILK was waiting at the stage door to get Ms. Parker's autograph for her two daughters when Mr. LAMBERTS walked out. She thought he was the best thing in the show and she tapped him on the shoulder to tell him so. They began talking and she eventually gave him her business card. For several months they telephoned and e-mailed until finally he drove down to Pittsburgh to visit her. On their first date, he took her to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting because "he wanted me to understand what it meant to him and what his life had been like."
Two years later, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He had surgery but the cancer had already spread and he needed radiation and chemotherapy. Ms. SILK, a divorced mother of three, persuaded him to move to Pittsburgh so she could take care of him. "He lived life larger than most people," said Ms. SILK. "He was everything for me."
Mr. LAMBERTS introduced her to Buddhism, which they both practised. "It wasn't all peaches and cream," she said. "He was difficult and he wasn't happy about coming to Pittsburgh, but it [our relationship] was very real and alive and meaningful."
Mr. LAMBERTS's disease progressed and he developed a second cancer in his throat. Still he kept on acting, as his health permitted. He appeared in e-lectricity with Rick Kemp in December and was scheduled to appear as Justice Swallow in Henry IV this month at the Irish and Classical Theatre.
The week before last, his condition deteriorated and he was admitted to hospital. Ms. SILK sat by his bedside and reread their e-mail correspondence to him as he lay dying.
As she finished, he suddenly sat forward, opened his eyes and then slipped back and stopped breathing. It was his final curtain call, one that gives Ms. SILK much comfort to relate.
"He was an actor and he had to make a magnificent exit," she said.
Heath LAMBERTS was born James LANGCASTER in Toronto on December 15, 1941, the eldest of three sons of Cyril and Patricia Langcaster. He died in Pittsburgh on February 22. He was 63. He is survived by his partner Louise SILK and her children and by his two brothers. A memorial service is being planned in Toronto.

GOLDENBERG, Carl, 1996 -- Died This Day
Friday, July 29, 2005, Page S7
Lawyer and politician born in Montreal in 1908.
Initially a constitutional expert, he enjoyed a long career working in public service. In 1936, he played a part in the Royal Commission on Dominion-Provincial Relations, and in 1968 became a constitution adviser to Prime Minister Pierre TRUDEAU. However, he was best known to the public as the Henry Kissinger of Canadian industrial relations. For 30 years, he helped resolve some of the country's most contentious labour disputes, from the 1943 Montreal Tramways strike to the 1972 strike at Sydney Steel Corp. In 1971, he was appointed to the Senate. He stepped down 11 years later, after which he lived and worked in Toronto.

Morris LIEBOVITZ, Mathematician: 1936-2004
The youngest-ever math department head at an Ontario high school, he was a baseball zealot who amassed the world's largest collection of books on the subject
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, March 2, 2005 - Page S9
He was a math whiz who amassed the world's largest collection of books about baseball. To those who knew Morris LIEBOVITZ, he was an educator at heart who loved literature, country music, and anything to do with the U.S. Civil War and baseball.
Mr. LIEBOVITZ was born in Hamilton, Ontario, where he attended Westdale High School. There he struck up a lifelong Friendship with Russ JACKSON, a fellow numbers nut and baseball maniac. Together, they were so skilled on the diamond that they earned a tryout with a New York Yankees' farm team in the 1950s. It wasn't uncommon, as Mr. JACKSON would say, for the two Friends to skip school and watch major-league games on television, including that memorable day when Don Larsen pitched a perfect game for the New York Yankees (their favourite team when they were growing up) to defeat the Brooklyn Dodgers 2-0 in the fifth game of the 1956 World Series.
The two Friends were also mathematical geniuses, first at Westdale and then at McMaster University. "We were always in the same honours class in high school and took the same subjects," Mr. JACKSON recently recalled. "We'd come out of math exams at university and we'd check our answers and there was, maybe, one different."
After university, their paths diverged. Mr. JACKSON, a star quarterback at high school, decided to suit up for the Ottawa Rough Riders. Mr. LIEBOVITZ realized he did not want to be a lawyer after all and that his true passion was mathematics and teaching. Armed with two degrees from McMaster University in Hamilton, he got a teaching certificate and in 1961 took a job at Galt Collegiate Institute in Galt, Ontario By 24, he was head of the math department, the youngest-ever at an Ontario high school, and eventually wrote seven high-school mathematics texts.
In 1968, he changed careers, joining the Ontario government as an executive assistant to the minister of education. Over time, he served under all three major political parties, all the while helping to define the shape of education in the province. He retired in 1984 to become a business consultant.
Through all that, baseball remained a passion. In 1977, after the Blue Jays alighted in Toronto, he began buying baseball books lots and lots of them. By 1992, Mr. LIEBOVITZ had already amassed a fairly large collection when he came up with the idea of a road trip to a string of minor-league U.S. baseball towns (he was inspired by the classic baseball movie Bull Durham).
"Morris and I were at a party and I said we ought to go to the park in Durham, North Carolina," his cousin and best friend Larry GOLDHAR recalled. "So he picked me up on it and asked, 'Why don't we?' A lot of times, people say they're going to do something but they never do. Well, we did."
Eventually, with an assortment of Friends, they visited about 100 parks over a span of 14 years. It was during those trips that Mr. LIEBOVITZ's love of collecting baseball books reached its zenith. In every small town they visited, Mr. Goldhar scouted the baseball-card store while Mr. LIEBOVITZ stalked the used bookstores.
"After we had checked into the motel in each of these towns, we'd pull out the phone book and Morris would find out where the bookstore was located," Mr. GOLDHAR said. "Before we started our trips, Morris owned about 1,000 books... Sometimes he'd come back with 30 books. He was forever looking to add to his rare collection of first editions in baseball fiction." Mr. LIEBOVITZ's favourite books were all fiction: Bang the Drum Slowly, The Southpaw, Shoeless Joe and The Natural.
"Jerome Holtzman, the famous sports columnist with the Chicago Tribune, thought he had the biggest collection of baseball books but when he found out about my dad's, he was blown away," son Paul LIEBOVITZ said. "My dad collected over 3,000 titles and he had a very meticulous list of all the books."
The entire LIEBOVITZ collection is valued in excess of $300,000. While the fiction category remains in family hands, the non-fiction titles were all donated to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Saint Marys, Ontario
"Morry's book collection is the largest donation, both in size and value, in the history of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame," said its president, Tom VALCKE.
When the Toronto Blue Jays began play in 1977, Mr. LIEBOVITZ had another team to cheer for besides the Yankees. For years he lugged his baseball glove to Exhibition Stadium or to the SkyDome in the hope of catching a foul ball.
"I once bumped into Morry during the third period of a Leafs game," Mr. VALCKE said. "After he updated me on every one of his grandchildren, which always came first, we got talking baseball. He bled baseball. I could listen to Morry talk baseball forever."
Last summer, Mr. LIEBOVITZ finally caught a foul ball, from the bat of a Yankee, no less. "When he caught that foul ball, he might as well have won the lottery," Mr. VALCKE said.
Morris LIEBOVITZ was born January 17, 1936, in Hamilton, Ontario He died December 14, 2004, at North York General Hospital of complications from acute leukemia. He was 68. He is survived by his wife Lorraine, sons Paul and Eric, and sister Adele.
