Robert LuPone stars in World Premiere of Dan McCormick’s THE VIOLIN at 59E59 Theaters
September 19, 2017: THE VIOLIN, a melodramtic tale by Dan McCormick about two ill-fated brothers, Bobby and Terry, and their elderly friend, Gio a tailor, opened at 59E59 Theaters for a limited run through October 14. When Bobby, played by Broadway veteran Robert LuPone, realizes his brother Terry, played by Kevin Isola, has found a priceless 1710 Stradivarius violin in his gypsy cab, Bobby sees an opportunity to cash in. The action, directed by Joseph Discher, is set in motion with Gio, played by Peter Bradbury, joining the brothers in an attempt to ransom the violin for $800,000.
Produced by The Directors Company in association with ShadowCatcher Entertainment, THE VIOLIN’s performance schedule through October 14 is Tuesday – Thursday at 7 PM; Friday at 8 PM; Saturday at 2 PM & 8 PM; and Sunday at 3 PM & 7 PM at 59E59 Theaters (59 East 59th Street, between Park and Madison Avenues).
