No, no, no, I’m not telling you to go out and break someone’s leg because they said something about you behind your back or maybe they owe you money. There’s a universal phrase “Break a leg” in theatre used to wish a performer “good luck.”
Journalist, playwright, good friend and writing mentor Pat Fenton will be at Farrell’s this coming Sunday along with actors Jack O’Connell and Honor Molloy. The trio will take us back to Pat’s old Windsor Terrace neighborhood performing a dramatic reading of three scenes from his play “STOOPDREAMER.”
Pat intimates the dreams, trials and travails of just ordinary people trying to find the American dream in post WWII.
Irish-American stories about a lost part of Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, that existed around 17th Street and 9th Avenue before Robert Moses drove the Prospect Expressway through the very heart of it in 1953, and divided it forever.
215 Prospect Park West
Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn. 11215
Sunday, April 13th. 2 P.M. to 2:45.
Admission is free.
If you can’t make it, don’t worry, like Pat told me, “just pour a pint and pretend you are back in Farrell’s for the reading.”
Yo Pat, Break a Leg brother!
