I first saw Robin Williams on my favorite childhood TV show, "Happy Days." He was an evil Orkin who froze all of Milwaukee until, of course, the Fonz broke the spell and saved the day.
Throughout my childhood, Williams' manic zeal was a regular part of my cultural diet - of course, Mork & Mindy, but then also drawing me into serious movies with "Moscow on the Hudson," which I went to only because it had comedian Robin Williams, but then convinced me that serious movies can be fun to watch as well.
On Saturday, Volcanic Theatre hosts a screening of Mrs. Doubtfire, a perfect capsule of his talents, funny yet sensitive.
