David Proval, best known as Tony Soprano's arch-rival Richie Apriel on "The Sopranos", moves from rubbing people out to running seltzer all over town in Richard Krevolin's Seltzer-Man: A One-Man Play About How the Last Seltzer-Man Lost and Found His Fizz, beginning performances Sept. 11 at the Tiffany Theatre. Opening night is set for Sept. 15.
Seltzer-Man is an angst-ridden writer, whose work is delivering seltzer in Lower East Side Manhattan. Even as the close of the 1960's is bringing an end to his day job, he holds on to his identity as an artist. Krevolin's other works include The Lemony Fresh Scent of Diva Monsoon, currently playing the Rose Alley Theatre, and the hit King Levine.
Proval won a Drama Desk nomination for his role in Requiem for a Heavyweight on Broadway. His film work includes "Mean Streets," "The Seige," "Romeo Is Bleeding" and "The Wrong Man" segment of Quentin Tarantino's "Four Rooms."
Lisa James directs. A Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle winner for Lenore Carlson's Palladium Is Moving, she was nominated for the same for Bitter Women and The Water Children.
