"Dan Fishback Alone!"

AFMDA - Join Us and Help Save Lives in Israel

When Dan Fishback was a neurotic Jewish child wondering what his life would be like if the Nazis returned, he missed one bizarre detail: that he would still have personal problems. In “Dan Fishback Alone!," the controversial playwright returns to Joe’s Pub to process what it means to be bad at relationships during the rise of what he calls American fascism. Without a band or a cast of Broadway actors, Fishback returns to his scrappy singer-songwriter roots for an evening of songs about tender feelings and global intentions.

With a mousy voice and ramshackle anti-folk sensibility, he’ll play songs from his musicals (“The Material World,” “Rubble Rubble”) his band Cheese On Bread, and his archive of tiny, anxious anthems. In a world of systemic injustice and boys who don’t text back, “Dan Fishback Alone!” can help you bandage your broken heart for battle.

“Quietly revolutionary” — Time Out New York

“So much like a nerdy close friend that audience members have to restrain themselves from responding” — The New Yorker

Dan Fishback is a playwright, musician and director of the Helix Queer Performance Network. His musical "The Material World" was called one of the Top Ten Plays of 2012 by Time Out New York. His play "You Will Experience Silence" was called “sassier and more fun than 'Angels in America'” by the Village Voice.
