BrooklynONE & Dialogue with Three Chords team up for "The Last Rites of Country Western Superstars"
BrooklynONE productions (bkONE) and Dialogue with Three Chords (D3C) team up to present “The Funeral Rites of Country Western Superstars” from playwright Stephen Gracia for brooklynONE’s April Reading Series.
“D3C is a theatre collective that produces staged readings of fresh material,” says Stephen Gracia, D3C co-founder and playwright. “Often written the same month it is performed, and with actors that are talented & dedicated enough to be on their feet, scripts in hand after only one rehearsal.”
“We are extremely excited to come together with Dialogue with Three Chords and offer such a fantastic night of theatre.” Said BrooklynONE Co-founder and Artistic Director Anthony Marino. “We are already looking forward to future collaborations”
