Dixon Place to Present Michael Harren's TENTATIVE ARMOR, 3/19
Obie Award winning off-off-broadway New York City theater, Dixon Place is presenting the premiere of Michael Harren's new solo work, Tentative Armor. Equal parts music and monologue, Tentative Armor is a darkly comedic collection of the performer's first-person stories of grief, sexuality and self-discovery. Tentative Armor's one-night-only event will go up Wednesday, March 19 at 7:30 pm.
In his emotionally raw, yet darkly hilarious Tentative Armor, Michael Harren combines piano, synthesizers, various electronics, and live musicians with his unique storytelling, resulting in a deeply moving, highly entertaining performance. Through his resonant, powerful, very personal stories, Harren envelops the audience in a funny, poignant, highly intimate tour of his own self-discovery through spirituality, sexuality, and grief.
"In Tentative Armor," says Director Adam Fitzgerald (The Awake, Methtacular!), "Michael combines his stunning musicianship with his uniquely honest and compelling storytelling voice to create a fascinating evening of performance - I am thrilled that he asked me to be a part of his process."
Tickets are $12 ($10 for students and seniors) and may be purchased online at www.dixonplace.org.
