Primary Stages' Feeding the Dragon Opens Off-Broadway
Maria Mileaf directs the show written and performed by Sharon Washington.
Primary Stages production of Feeding the Dragon, written and performed by Sharon Washington and presented in a coproduction with Hartford Stage, opened Tuesday, April 3, at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Directed by Maria Mileaf, the solo play is set to run through April 27.
In Feeding the Dragon, Sharon revisits her time growing up in an apartment on the top floor of the St. Agnes branch of the New York Public Library, where her father served as the building's custodian. Shrouded in family mystery, Sharon's story boldly examines how both the power of forgiveness and her lifelong love for the written word have helped her battle dragons of all forms.
Feeding the Dragon features scenic design by Tony Ferrieri, costume design by Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Ann Wrightson, and sound design by Lindsay Jones.
