Four very different Americans reflect on the human divide in 21st Century America in this comic, unsettling, and timely solo show. More…
Actor/Playwright Daniel Damiano returns in his multi-character solo play "American Tranquility," where he plays four very different Americans: a retired Alabaman, an Iranian Poet/Percussionist, a radio talk-show host, and a Brooklyn existentialist.
for a previous production "Probably one of the best one-person shows that I’ve ever reviewed, both in terms of its performance and its concept...I was skeptical...whether Mr. Damiano could actually pull off a performance of each of these diverse characters...Yet I was easily proven wrong. The play does a very fine job at exploring the division in modern American society on a very human level, and Damiano seamlessly pulls off each of the four individual performances of the characters in his show." Full Review
for a previous production "A window into the lives of four very different Americans, each with his own ideas about tranquility and prosperity...While the characters are often humorous, the perspectives they represent are all too real...Supporting these lofty themes is a truly impressive performance on the part of Mr. Damiano. Armed with a writer’s ear for capturing dialogue and an actor’s flair for delivery, he makes his characters impressively real and uniquely vibrant." Full Review
