Solo riff has musing, music, poetry
The actor and writer Richard Hoehler will perform the solo riff I of the Storm by RJ Bartholomew, at the Philipstown Depot Theatre at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 20.
Hoehler, who won recognition from the Off-Off-Broadway Review (OOBR) for a previous solo show, New Jersey/New York, Working Class, performed I of the Storm in a limited run at the Playroom Theater in Times Square this past fall. Hoehler is also a poet, short-story writer and the founder of Acting Out, a class designed for high-risk youth and prisoners.
“Ensconced on the street outside a city park our hero holds forth for all comers musing, ranting, singing, dancing, spitting poems with aplomb,” according to a summary at iofthestormoffbroadway.com. “In embracing both the joys and sorrows of life, the message is clear: It’s about not wasting any more time.”
Tickets are $20 at brownpapertickets.com, or call 800-838-3006. The Philipstown Depot Theatre is located on Garrison’s Landing in Garrison.
