Dialogue with Three Chords is a new, monthly collaboration between Barefoot ensemble member and playwright Stephen Gracia and founding member/Associate Director Michael LoPorto.
D3C will feature new plays written by Gracia and directed by LoPorto the fourth Thursday of every month at Mr. Dennehy's Irish Pub at 63 Carmine Street, NYC. They will be staged readings with live music, a talk back, poetry readings, and more.
D3C is free with a suggested donation of $3 going to support the actors and musicians.
Opening night is July 28th at 8pm and will feature four short plays:
The Rebel Sound of Fuckin' Around
Instructions for Dancing
Fast Food Strategies
Fast Food Strategies was developed with Barefoot Theatre and presented as a reading at The Producers Club and The Theaters at 45 Bleecker. The other three are making their live debuts.
The four plays will feature Barefoot ensemble members Kendra Leigh Landon, Dan Graff, TJ Lombardo, and Susanne Stewart, as well as Sean Meehan, Matthew Ferretti, and Ridley Parson who previously worked with Gracia and LoPorto on the world premiere of NEXT at HERE Arts Center, a production that Martin Denton of NYTHeatre.com called "vivid and sublime", "uncompromising", "cathartic", and "remarkable theatre."
Live music will be provided by Tommy Lombardozzi.
