The cast of “The Ballad of Alejandro Lopez” takes a curtain call.
The Barefoot Theatre Company in New York held a staged reading of my full-length script “The Ballad of Alejandro Lopez” on June 17, 2013 at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre in Manhattan. (Historic because it’s a stage where Edward Albee and Sam Shepard have also had some of their works debut.)
More details on the show here.
Here are some photos, courtesy of Barefoot.

At the read-through. This is the opening scene, in which a young boy (OK, imagine he’s 10) explains to the principal how he threw a rock into a hornet’s nest.
At Monday’s rehearsal, on the actual stage. Director Rose Bonczek is standing, back to camera.
Mickey Ryan (standing) is Randy Mack, the ambitious attorney general of Texas. He talks with Jay Nickerson (seated), who plays Sheriff Spike Luckenbach.
Still more rehearsal.
Pre-show music by Joe Crow Ryan.
