Red Dog Howls (Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop). Red Dog Howls, Alexander Dinelaris' drama about family secrets shaken loose, stars Tony Award nominee Kathleen Chalfant, Florencia Lozano and Alfredo Narciso. Here's how it's billed: "A box of old letters and a father's dying wish leads Michael Kiriakos to dig up the buried memories of his hidden family history. After meeting Rose, his father's now-elderly, Armenian pen pal, Michael slowly learns of a past he never knew existed — one of exile, sacrifice and, ultimately, redemption." Visit NYTW.org.
