"Black Tie"

(Aug. 3, 10 & 17) — "Black Tie" is a workshop production of a solo work of theater  — "a family memoir, centered on my father. Our fathers pay the bills and tell us to do our homework. But who are they, really? After my father died, I asked this question, examining a man who seemed to have led an unremarkable middle-class life. What I found was a hero, for his courage in serving his country during World War II, for his diligence in serving his family in the decades that followed." — Michael Takiff

Drama with comedy, not to mention a bit of song and dance.

Written and performed by Michael Takiff, author of "A Complicated Man: The Life of Bill Clinton as Told by Those Who Know Him" (Yale University Press).

Directed by Brian Lane Green.
