New York City
Carlo D’Amore’s No Parole is a hoot! It’s a dark engrossingly hilarious roller-coaster ride, full of crime, a Peruvian diva-like matriarch and rags-to-riches-to-rags immigrants. This autobiographical solo play explores the nature of sons and mothers while telling the tale of this extraordinary family. There truly is no parole from family.
Carlo D’Amore directed the New York premiere of Voices From Guantanamo, a dramatization of poems written by detainees held at Guantanamo Bay for Actors and Poets Group. The poems were all published by the Iowa Press in conjunction with the Center For Constitutional Rights and Amnesty International and were greatly anticipated in their New York debut.
Broadway credits include the Round About Theater Company’s production of Tennessee William’s Summer and Smoke directed by David Warren, and most recently Latinologues directed by Cheech Marin where he played seven different characters to sold out crowds at the Helen Hayes Theater.
Regional acting credits include three productions at the legendary Magic Theater and four productions at Theater Rhino, including solo work on the highly awarded Men on the Verge of a His-panic Breakdown.
Film and Television credits include being directed by Spike Lee for a project at “Forty Acres and a Mule.” His television debut was in the critically acclaimed series “OZ,” opposite Rita Moreno, directed by Tom Fontana. Directed by Margarett Perry.
