I’m happy to announce that my short play, FOR THE BENEFIT OF JIMMY MANGIAROLI, is being presented on Sunday, September 19, as part of Vampingo Productions’ inaugural Salon Series. The salon is being generously supported by a grant from New York City to help get theater back up and running during this pandemic, and I’m delighted to be part of the effort. Tickets are free; RSVP and proof of vaccination are reminder. For details, please check out the company website here.
