Booze, dive bars, piano bars, horror films, blood, bourbon, Dom DeLuise, David Bowie, darkness, and redemption. From Brooklyn, New York, actor-writer Dan Ruth presents A Life Behind Bars in association with Whitefire SoloFest. This 2016 United Solo Festival winner for Best Autobiographical Show is real, raw, and hilarious. Through gritty storytelling, Ruth shares dark comic monologues, interwoven with characters he's encountered while working and drinking in the bars and dives of pre-Rudy Giuliani NYC. A Life Behind Bars is directed by performer-producer-director Tanya Moberly.
The Whitefire SoloFest, in its sixth year, runs from January 6-March 3, and is produced by Bryan Rasmussen, Jessica Lynn Johnson, and Nancy Santiago.
