Frank Ingrasciotta Will Discover His Blood Type Is Ragu Oct. 26 in NYC
By Andrew Gans
Blood Type: Ragu, Frank Ingrasciotta's 20-character, one-man show about a family that emigrates back and forth from Sicily to America, returns to New York City Oct. 26 as part of the United Solo Festival.
Show time is 9 PM at the Studio Theatre on Theatre Row, 410 W. 42nd St.
Author-actor Ingrasciotta, an acting teacher trained in the Meisner technique, developed Ragu at Off-Off-Broadway's Dixon Place. He previously told Playbill.com the show was about "the first-generation child as a go-between [for] two cultures. It should resonate with any ethnic group that's experienced this." Asked how much of the show was autobiographical and how much was fictional, Ingrasciotta replied, "It's 80 percent true, 10 percent my wife's story combined into mine, and 10 percent heightened for drama."
Ragu has also been seen at HERE, Manhattan Theatre Source, the Ensemble Studio Theatre, Manhattan Repertory, Authors Playhouse and George Street Playhouse. Ted Sod directs the show.
