After hit runs in NYC and Edinburgh, Peter Michael Marino's fully improvised solo show enjoys an encore run at Under St. Marks. More…
After years of performing his solo shows around the world, Marino grew weary of writing and memorizing them. So he's decided to just show up and create one on the spot.
