An Evening of Brecht, Fo and Pinter

Talent can be found in the basement of the Drama Bookshop on W.40th Street in the Arthur Seelen Theater. Joel Bischoff worked for me for a short while on a temporary assignment as did a few other actors/musicians. What a pleasure for our paths to cross.

This show had a short run - 3 days - but well worth the $8 ticket! Three one act plays - one each by Brecht, Fo, and Pinter. An interesting combination - Brecht's drama set in Nazi Germany in the 1930's, Fo's farce set in a city square "any time, anywhere" and Pinter's 8 minute dramatic sketch set in "a room".

A black box theater is... well... a black box theater - but it's so refreshing to see some raw talent close-up in such a small setting. Kudos to Hyphenate Theater for bringing these talented actors together!
