"Veteran actor Erick Avari has returned to Shakespeare & Company after an over-30-year absence to perform a bevy of roles, including the Duke in Shakespeare's "Two Gentlemen of Verona" playing this week through Sunday in the Tina Packer Playhouse. While his name may not be familiar, his ambiguous ethnic origin has seen him play 33 different nationalities — including two aliens — in a long, notable career in film, television and theater that includes "The Mummy," "Mr. Deeds" and "Stargate."'
