The theatrical evening features veteran of television, film and Broadway stage Jeffrey Tambor.

Mr. Tambor’s career has spanned decades, a rarity in Hollywood. He is perhaps best known for his television roles on “Barny Miller” and the “Larry Sanders Show,” or as the dejected dad from the 2009 Hollywood hit “The Hangover.”

Mr. Tambor received the 2015 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a comedy series for his newest role as transgender patriarch-turned matriarch in Amazon’s new hit series “Transparent.” The role has also earned him an Emmy nomination.

On Nov. 12, Mr. Tambor will share anecdotes from his decades in front of the camera, his family and his Jewish upbringing. He is known for captivating his audiences with his highly creative and entertaining one-man show using his love of life and its lessons.

He will inspire MEGA guests to put their passions into action with his “Performing Your Life, What’s Keeping You?”

Maytal & Etzion, the duo that took Israel’s reality television show, “The Voice,” by storm also perform.
