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.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
