THE CRACKERJACK to Open 6/14 at Lounge Theatre
THE CRACKERJACK opening at The Lounge Theatre, is a one-person-show about the #1 tugboat captain in NYC through the 1940's. My Great Uncle Jimmy boldly navigated his way through life, never knowing the wondrous impact he would make on mine - a curious 7 year old from NJ. A true story of history, of family, of discovery, and what it all meant to me...
These inspiring stories will be performed in the vein of the movie "On The Waterfront" and the stage version of "A Bronx Tale." It's a true story of history, of family, of discovery and what it all meant to a child.
The show includes music and vintage slides from the time period. Running time: 50 minutes
