Robert Zimmerman (Director)
Long before creating San Francisco’s premiere acting school, Beverly Hills Playhouse/SF, and the award winning Firescape Theatre, Rob started working professionally at age eleven at The Sharon Playhouse in Connecticut. Since then, he has been lucky enough to work/train with some of the top directors in the business including Jack O'Brien, Des McAnuff, Tony Richardson, David Lynch and Milton Katselas.
It is from these directors Rob learned the need for storytellers to always be 'pushing the envelope' whether the story is being told for the first or the thousandth time. He tries to bring this sensibility to every BHP/Firescape production.
As an actor Rob has appeared in Twin Peaks, Port Charles and starred in the BBC made for TV movie, Murder, Too. Film credits include Don's Plum with Leonardo DiCaprio & Tobey Maguire and Working Trash with Ben Stiller & George Carlin.
