STAGE TUBE: New Teaser for THE BULLPEN Off-Broadway
by Stage Tube - Oct 28, 2014

One year ago today, actor/writer Joe Assadourian went from the cage to the stage when he was released from Otisville Correctional Institution after serving 12 of his 25-year sentence for attempted murder. Having discovered his theatrical ability while reluctantly participating in a workshop behind bars led by Off-Broadway solo-show actor/directorRichard Hoehler, he wrote The Bullpen, a one-man - 18-character comedy - which The New York Times calls 'wildly funny' and 'a must see' by Theatermania. Eric Krebs, in association with The Fortune Society, is presenting the 'tour de force' (The Huffington Post) at The Playroom Theater (151 West 46th Street - just east of Broadway). Performances began on June 22, 2014 where it was met with critical acclaim and has been extended twice - now through November 22.
