PRLog - Aug. 26, 2014 - NEW YORK -- Dialogue with Three Chords (D3C) kicks off their fourth year of staging original theatre by presenting a season of unproduced plays from its first three years. The first show of the fall season features two new plays: “Day Drinking and Dreaming of You” and “If You Live with Wolves, You Will Learn to Howl” written by Stephen Gracia and directed by Michael LoPorto. Both works explore the art we create with others and what of that art survives when the relationships fail. The performance is on Thursday, August 28 at 8pm at Mr. Dennehy’s on 63 Carmine Street in Manhattan. Emmy-winning composer Michal Towber is the musical guest, bringing her punk rock pop to the proceedings. Admission is free, with a $3 suggested donation.

“This month’s plays were originally written for previous D3C performances, but were never presented due to time constraints,”
Musical guest Michal Towber built her career on the Village’s open mic scene and remarks: "it's wonderful to participate in a theater collective that captures the raw, exciting energy of the New York city I grew up in-the opposite of safe, sanitized and corporate-when anything could (and did) happen." Director Michael LoPorto, whose work is often inspired by records, adds: “last year was our concept record, this year is our b-sides,” referring to ‘Shipyard Souls & A Compass Rose,’ a play performed in a serialized format which spanned D3C’s entire third season of performances. By contrast, Gracia says, “D3C season four is full of b-sides, outtakes, and happy accidents.”
