Daniel Damiano's AMERICAN TRANQUILITY Comes to The East Village Playhouse

Daniel Damiano's AMERICAN TRANQUILITY Comes to The East Village Playhouse

After it's recently acclaimed performance in the 16th Annual Downtown Urban Arts Festival, a revival of award-winning Playwright/Actor Daniel Damiano's acclaimed and ultra-timely multi-character solo play for a 3 week/3 performance engagement comes to the new East Village Playhouse, produced by fandango 4 Art House.

What is American Tranquility?

A one-hour humorous and thought-provoking exploration into the human divide in 21st Century America from the perspective of 4 very different Americans; a retired Alabaman, an Iranian subway poet/percussionist, a radio talk-show host and a Brooklyn existentialist.

Why American Tranquility?

As audiences and reviews have noted, now more than ever,American Tranquility taps into many of the key elements which have created a division in American society in a highly amusing, unusually probing and moving way; particularly issues such as ageism, immigration, political extremism and societal disconnection.
