Shul helped Steve beat loneliness in Los Angeles

ACTOR Steve Guttenberg has had the kind of career that put him in touch with nearly every trend in Hollywood.

There were prestige films like Diner and Cocoon and the lighter but wildly successful fare like the first four films in the Police Academy series.

Three Men and a Baby was the biggest American box office hit of 1987; the 2004 Christmas film Single Santa Seeks Mrs Claus somehow spawned a sequel.

In short, itís the kind of career that would inspire a juicy, dishy memoir, which it did when he wrote The Guttenberg Bible in 2012.

Now a stage adaptation, Tales From the Guttenberg Bible, is playing in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Guttenberg plays himself in the show, in which he explores his career, his Judaism and much more.
