Howard Lieberman, poet, storyteller and performance artist, has done everything on stage except sing. As Artistic Director of the Irish Arts Center in New York, he performed in numerous dance/theatre productions. He came to be regarded as the finest Jewish traditional Irish Ceili dancer in Manhattan. Howard grew up on the North Side of Chicago with a professional tap dancer for a father and a math teacher for a mother, which partially explains his wild mood swings. As a young adult Howard left the wholesome Midwest to find fame and fortune as a "Wall Street" lawyer in New York City. 20 years and one child later, Howard moved to bucolic and staunchly Republican Stillwater, Minnesota with a New York accent and a jaded sense of humor. Howard's sometimes over the top blend of performance art and storytelling has made him a fixture in the Twin Cities performance world. On top of everything else he does, Howard can be seen the first Monday of every month in Stillwater City Hall where he plays the roles of Good Cop and Bad Cop as the Chair of the Stillwater Heritage Preservation Commission.
