Remembering Glen

Glen Lambert, director of the Vaudeville show, former Board of Trustee for STAGE RIGHT, VP of Adult Stage for ACE Theatre, co-founder of Misfit Toys, professional actor, Arts Liaison and chair of the Healthcare committee of the Northwest Chamber of Commerce, antique shop owner, licensed antiques appraiser, auctioneer, freelance write, and lover of root beer passed on this weekend. Is there anything Glen didn't do? Glen had a degree in Theatre from Rice University and a background in public speaking.


Glen was one of the funniest guys I knew onstage. His sense of comic timing was impeccable. He could morph his face into a visual that instantly communicated more than any audible joke. The most recent shows I saw him in were Exit the Body, The Boys Next Door, and On Borrowed Time. While I saw Glen in primarily ACE Theatre shows, I know he acted at many different venues including Country Playhouse and Playhouse 1960.

As much as I admired his sense of laughter, his energy, and his passion for theatre there is so much that I don't know about him. What I do know is that his last months were spent doing things he wanted to do: an authentic Vaudeville show and Doubt:A Parable. While neither was easy given his many commitments, both shows were great successes. I understand that he had just gone fishing and had a good time.

Many of his friends have placed pictures of Glen as he would want to be remembered on Facebook. ACE Theatre has assembled a nice tribute to Glen. See the Vaudeville playbill or his television interview to get a small insight into Glen Lambert. You will be missed, my friend.

Neighboring theatres are cooperating with James Reed who has been selected as the point of contact between Glen's family in California and his actor friends in the greater Houston area. A memorial service will be held tentatively at Playhouse 1960 at 6814 Gant Rd, Houston, TX 77066 on Sunday, November 29 at 5:30-9:30 pm. See the Facebook information page for more details and to RSVP.

We have included some samples of Glen's work while at ACE Theatre in Exit the Body.

An example of how Glen could evoke laughter by saying very little. He always understood that comedy was just as much what you did as how you might say something.
