Ryan O'Connor Returns to Rockwell Table & Stage in VOTE, PRAY, LOVE
Vote, Pray, Love marks Ryan O'Connor's return to Rockwell Table & Stage with his first cabaret show since his highly lauded autobiographical debut Ryan O'Connor Eats His Feelings in 2009. Directed by Tony Award-winner Marissa Jaret Winokur (Hairspray), this new show will play one performance only on Monday, December 4, at 8pm.
In 2016, Ryan O'Connor took a break from show business to work as a Field Organizer for the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign in Pontiac, Michigan. Now returning to the cabaret stage, Vote, Pray, Love is an exploration of how his 150-pound weight loss, sobriety from drug and alcohol abuse, a career implosion, and a sudden divorce led to his unlikely redemption in the middle of nowhere, all told through story and song in his uniquely comic and vulnerable voice in an exciting, engaging, and emotionally cathartic night of entertainment.
O'Connor has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, How I Met Your Mother, Hollywood Hillbillies, Giada Entertains, and on OWN with Suze Orman. His various entertainment exploits have been profiled in People Magazine and The Advocate 40 Under 40, among others. He recently appeared in the world premiere of the new Fat Mike/Soma Snakeoil/Jeff Marx musical, Home Street Home. Additionally, O'Connor has published essays on his dramatic weight loss and being an unexpected pioneer in gay divorce, as well as co-hosting the popular podcast LadyWatch with Ryan and Jason.
Featuring musical direction by Emily Rosenfield, Ryan O'Connor's Vote, Pray, Love plays one performance only at Rockwell Table & Stage on Monday, December 4, at 8pm.
