Award-Winning A LIFE BEHIND BARS Returns To California

New York City actor Dan Ruth, returns to California with his critically acclaimed solo black comedy "A Life Behind Bars."

Award-Winning A LIFE BEHIND BARS Returns To California

New York City actor/bartender, Dan Ruth, will bring his critically acclaimed A Life Behind Bars to The Rustic Theatre in Idyllwild, CA for two performances on October 14th and 15th 2022 at 8pm.

Fermented in over two decades of working and surviving in the dive bars and seedy haunts of 1990's New York City, A Life Behind Bars is an unapologetic and transcendent tale of what can happen when you move to New York City to reach for the stars but grab for the bottle instead.

Dan Ruth brings A Life Behind Bars to life through dark, comedic monologues, interwoven with characters he's encountered while working and drinking in pre-Rudy Giuliani Brooklyn and Manhattan. A Life Behind Bars is directed by multi-award-winning performer/director Tanya Moberly, also based in New York City. This is Ruth's first appearance since the Covid 19 shutdown.

The Rustic Theatre is located at 54290 N. Circle Drive in Idyllwild, CA. All shows are at 8pm. Price is $20 in advance $25 day of the show. **Please Note: A Life Behind Bars has frank language and mature themes.
