Blood Type: RAGU at the Actors' Playhouse
The Newly renovated Off Broadway space Actors' Playhouse will reopen with the Flying Machine Productions Blood Type: RAGU, written and performed by Frank Ingrasciotta. The one-man show opens at the venue on 5 Mar 2009, following previews from 20 Feb and running through to 31 May 2009.
Blood Type: RAGU: A one-man show featuring over 20 characters, is based on the life experiences of writer/performer Frank Ingrasciotta. It tells the humorous and poignant story of a Sicilian immigrant family and their cultural struggle in America. The story takes us through four turbulent, yet comical decades as Frank jockeys between two cultures ï¿½ his parentï¿½s old world views and the new world, a.k.a. America.
The playï¿½s twice-extended four-month run at the Belmont Playhouse broke records, becoming one of the longest running shows in the theatreï¿½s ten-year history. The show has also been performed at Dixon Place, HERE, Manhattan Theatre Source, Ensemble Studio Theatre (as part of its Octoberfest), Manhattan Repertory, Authors Playhouse, George Street Playhouse, Westchester Music Conservatory, Riverspace Arts (Nyack), Metropolis Port Theater Company (Atlanta, GA) as well as Westchester Community College, CUNY Lehman College, SUNY Stony Brook.
Frank Ingrasciotta began his career as stage manager for the original Off-Broadway production of 'Godspell.' His NY stage credits include 'Valley of the Dolls,' 'Three Postcards,' 'Dinner at 8,' 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.' TV credits include recurring roles on 'Guiding Light,' 'One Life to Live' and 'The Equalizer.'
