Lovers of art and all things good in the world, check out my very favorite playwright in the world, Joe Pintauro, who is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his “Men’s Lives” tonight at the Parrish Art Museum at 6 p.m.
The reading, produced by Stephen Hamilton and Emma Walton Hamilton (two more cool cats) will be held in conjunction with the current exhibition, Radical Seafaring at the Parrish Art Museum. The play, which Walton and Hamilton introduced as the opening production at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor 25 years ago, is based on the book by Peter Matthiessen.
This particular reading stars J. Stephen Brantley (Popeye), Matthew Conlon (Courtney, Fisherman, Senator), Stephen Hamilton (Peter), Diana Marbury (Alice), Cashus Muse (Nate), Joe Pallister (Lee), Josh Salt (William), and Harris Yullin (Walt). Jenna Mate (stage directions) is the production stage manager and assistant director.
This play is so good and so right on about the East End. Check it out even if you can’t get in to this particular show. It’s more than worth it.
