The Cast and Director of Savage in Limbo

On Saturday, August 24, at 2 p.m., Center Stage Playhouse presents a reading of John Patrick Shanley's Savage in Limbo at Bronx House, 990 Pelham Parkway South, Bronx, New York, 10461.  I hope you all have the chance to come see it.  Admission is a $5 suggested donation. 

The cast is stellar:

Laura Lee Botsacos as Denise Savage
Danielle Alonzo as Linda Rotunda
Thomas Losito as Tony Aronica
Jessica Breda as April White
Antonio TJ Johnson as Murk   
Linda Blackstock as The Narrator

Here's a word from the director, Christopher Arena:
 
"Dear friends,

I'm currently directing a one-performance-only reading of an extended one-act play for Center Stage Playhouse. It's "Savage in Limbo" by John Patrick Shanley.

Shanley also wrote Doubt, which I directed for Center Stage as well.

Yes, I know, it's a reading, and yes, it's a one-act, but I've got to tell you, it's such a quirky, genuine piece of theater and I have such an amazing cast, you really should come down and check us out.

I promise you it's well worth the trip.

Written in 1984, the play centers upon five "losers" in a Bronx bar. The angst, the anger, the humor, the passion that literally exudes from the play is written as only Shanley could.

On the cover page he writes:  

This play is dedicated to all those good assassins who contributed to the death of my former self.

Now really, how can you resist?

I'd love to see you there, so I hope you can make it.

All the best,

Chris"
 
As the producer, I too hope to see you all there. If you can't make it, please spread the word.
