A Life Behind Bars

written & performed by Dan Ruth

directed by Tanya Moberly

Jan 31, Feb 1 & 2 @ 8:00 pm

"A Life Behind Bars" is a hilarious & seedy tour-de-force roller coaster ride of after-hour whiskey shots, horror films and rock & roll.  Dan Ruth shares dark comic monologues, interwoven with characters he's encountered while working & drinking in the bars & dives of pre-gentrified NYC with universal results. From a NYC Health Inspector, to a Brooklyn "new money" hipster, to a Hell's Kitchen-Andrew Lloyd Webber-loving piano bar denizen, to his own alcoholic celebration and fall, "A Life Behind Bars" shines an incredible light on over two decades of NYC bartending with an incredible message of survival.
