Dialogue with Three Chords to Open Season on 8/28
Dialogue with Three Chords (D3C) kicks off their fourth year of staging original plays in Greenwich Village by presenting a season of unproduced plays from its first three years. "These are the plays that didn't fit," explains playwright and D3C co-founder Stephen Gracia, "a Joe Orton influenced noir piece, a surreal play about a plague that corrupts faith, and a night of first kisses and new religions at the water's edge." The Fall 2014 season begins on Thursday, August 28 at 8pm at Mr. Dennehy's on 63 Carmine Street. Emmy-winning composer Michal Towber starts the season off as the musical guest for the season opening performance, bringing her brand of punk rock pop to the proceedings. Admission is free, with a $3 suggested donation.
"Last year was our concept record, this year is our B-sides," explains director and D3C co-founder Michael LoPorto, referring to 'Shipyard Souls & A Compass Rose,' a play performed in a serialized format which began in August 2013 and spanned D3C's entire third season of performances. By contrast, explains Gracia, "D3C season four is full of b-sides, outtakes, and happy accidents."
