CAPE MAY – President Ronald Reagan was widely known as “The Great Communicator.” Many people don’t know it was a Cape May resident who was behind Reagan’s effectiveness as a debater.
“He was a great communicator well before I met him,” Martel said. “What I thought I brought to the table was a sense of focus to the debate process as well as strategic insights. His communicative gifts were evident throughout the process and his career. I was amazed by his ability to absorb and express ideas.”
Martel will be participating with actor Robert Newman in a “Talk Back” session after the Friday, Oct. 17, performance of “Other Desert Cities,” running through Oct. 31 at Cape May Stage.
