Mile Square Theatre presents Joseph Gallo’s (’08) podcast play, Playbill Gallery (a love story) starting Friday, March 5th.
From Mile Square Theatre:
In February of 2020, Gallo’s compilation of more than 250 Playbills, made-up entirely of shows he had seen on Broadway and Off-Broadway, opened as part of an art exhibit held at the Benjamin J. Dineen, II and Dennis C. Hull Gallery in Jersey City.
An accompanying solo play used the Playbills to collectively tell the story of a life in the theatre, and to highlight the unique journey that each live theatre experience brings.
The Playbills, and additional performances by Gallo, were slated to be on display at MST in 2021. But because of these trying times, The Playbill Gallery (a love story) has been re-worked as a Podcast, featuring a sound score by our resident designer Michael Blaskewicz, with the help of 16 additional voices.
With our theatrical spaces shuttered, this bittersweet homage to a lifetime of theatre-going taps into the current longing that every theatre-goer and every theatre-maker is experiencing.
The Playbill Gallery (a love story) could not arrive at a more critical time!
