Recreating Keiter: I Saw Dad Make the Whole Thing Up
Cindy Keiter's one-woman multimedia show reveals what life was like away from the diamond for one of the game's greatest broadcasters, her Father Les Keiter. For a generation of sports fans, Les Keiter was the most trusted voice in radio and television, calling some of the past century's defining boxing matches and pioneering the baseball re-create, where, alone in a studio with only game stats and a microphone, he created the atmosphere of a live game with just his voice and minimal sound effects. 50 years after Les Keiter's heyday in New York, his youngest child Cindy offers a hilarious and moving tribute about his accomplished career, the disappointments each have experienced and how they overcame life's losses. Using archival footage and photos of sports greats Muhammad ali, Howard Cosell, and Floyd Patterson among others, ReCReaTING KeITeR: I Saw Dad Make the Whole Thing Up follows the Keiter family's journey from New York, where Les was the announcer for the New York Giants and the New York Knicks, to Philadelphia, where he served as sports director of WFIL-TV, to Hawaii, where he landed jobs as the sports director at KHON-TV and the voice of the Triple-a baseball team the Islanders . Why, at the height of his game, did Les Keiter leave sports Meccas New York and Philadelphia behind for Hawaii? How did Les and Cindy recreate their own lives following setbacks? What was it like for Cindy to share her famous Father with the whole world? after spending 20 years living in shadow of her father's voice, Cindy traveled 6,000 miles to New York in a quest to find her own.
