The Stories of Frank O’Connor
August 20, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Performer Alysa Leandra trained at the High School of Performing Arts in NYC, the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Connecticut, the Hedgerow Theatre in Pennsylvania, and Musica Humana in England. She was introduced to O’Connor’s stories while “living in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, home to many Irish who had only just then settled there. I loved the main pub and then became a regular at ‘An Beal Bocht,’ a cafe where food and drink and poetry and theatre comingled, and where I had the great fortune to hear the late actor Chris O’Neill perform ‘First Confession,’ one of O’Connor’s more humorous stories. I promise this one tonight, and other favorites.”
