Joe Orrach: In My Corner

January 11, 2018 -
8:00pm to 9:30pm
Pigott Studio Theater

Free

Performer Joe Orrach — versatile actor, tap sensation, and former USAF welterweight boxing champ — embodies four dynamic and passionate characters in this emotionally charged story. Accompanied by his jazz trio and a lively original score by jazz pianist Matt Clark, Joe blends the rhythms of tap, boxing, salsa and rock ‘n roll into an energetic and intimate narrative. The original play written by Lizbeth Hasse and Orrach, and directed by Jeremiah Chechik (Benny and Joon, Diabolique) is a father-son story of a street-smart, wise guy Puerto Rican–Italian kid from the Bronx who comes of age in the ring and on the dance floor.
