Cindy Keiter's tribute to her father, sportscasting legend Les Keiter; directed by Padraic Lillis

Cindy Keiter's multimedia one-woman show reveals what life was like growing up the daughter of famed sports broadcaster Les Keiter. For a generation of sports fans, Les Keiter was the most trusted voice in radio and television. He crossed paths with some of the past century's most iconic sports figures, including Muhammad Ali, Howard Cosell, Willie Mays, Jesse Owens, Floyd Patterson and Don King. He is best known for his baseball re-creates, 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.

Fifty years after his heyday in New York as the voice of the New York Giants and New York Knicks, his youngest child Cindy offers a hilarious and moving tribute to his extraordinary life, the struggles both have faced and how they recreated their lives after disappointments. Using archival footage and photos, RECREATING KEITER: I Saw Dad Make the Whole Thing Up follows the Keiter family's extraordinary journey from New York to Philadelphia to Hawaii. Why, at the height of his game, did Les Keiter leave sports Meccas New York and Philadelphia behind for Hawaii? 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.
