New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) today began rehearsals for NYTW's production of Red Dog Howls, written by Alexander Dinelaris and led by Kathleen Chalfant. Ken Rus Schmoll will direct the production, which opens the 2012-13 season, beginning performances September 4, 2012. BroadwayWorld brings you photos from the first rehearsal below!
A box of old letters and a father's dying wish leads Michael Kiriakos to dig up the buried memories of his hidden family history. After meeting Rose, his father's now-elderly, Armenian pen pal, Michael slowly learns of a past he never knew existed, one of exile, sacrifice and, ultimately, redemption. Written by Alexander Dinelaris (Still Life), Red Dog Howls explores the horrors of human atrocities, the enduring strength of the human spirit, and how the choices we make as husbands, sons, wives, and daughters will-for better or worse-reverberate for generations.
New York Theatre Workshop, now celebrating its 29th season, is a leading voice in the world of Off-Broadway and within the theatre community in New York and around the world.
