News   Straight Up with a Twist Served Off-Broadway Jan. 17
 
"Renaissance geek" Paul Stroili brings his acclaimed one-man show Straight Up with a Twist Off-Broadway beginning Jan. 17.

Bill Penton directs the work inspired by Stroili's life that "takes a look at one family, as they try to figure out a straight guy who says: 'Don't call my house during the football game…that's when I vacuum!"' In the production, "Stroili portrays his Bronx-born mother, his Italian father, his Goombah brother, and a host of other characters who struggle to understand a straight guy who 'can't work power tools, but can perfectly fold a fitted sheet,'" according to press notes.

Stroili, whose television credits include appearances on "Malcolm in the Middle," "Brother's Keeper," "The Untouchables" and "Cold Justice," penned the one-man autobiographical comedy that previously played an award-winning run in Los Angeles in 2000 and several regional engagements.

Straight Up with a Twist is produced by David and Hyra George (Millrock). The production was previously filmed for a one-hour television comedy special.

The production will officially open Jan. 24 at the Players Theatre, located in Manhattan at 115 MacDougal Street. Tickets, priced $45, are available by calling (212)239-6200 or by visiting www.Telecharge.com.
