A few days ago I was fortunate enough to watch and shoot some production stills for the off Broadway play B*TCH written by Sean Pompesello and directed by Christian Amato.
Let me start off by saying that you should go see this show. The story revolves around the Debenedetto family which consist of three brothers, one of which was taken in off the streets when he was young, and together they run a car salvage business in the Bronx. But when the brothers find a rare blue pit bull, they decide to go into the get-rich-quick scheme of dog fighting with the help of their estranged and inexorable uncle.
It's funny in all the wrong ways while still shining a message on a serious topic; dog fighting. The characters were intriguing with unfolding back stories which, explained some animosities between one another and themselves. The dialogue was fast paced, dark and hilarious at times (going against all things politically correct); just how I like a story to be told, and this was wonderfully played by the actors at hand.
I can't say this enough, go see it while you can.
And to avoid spoilers I'll stop the photo preview here, which naturally means that you'll have to go and see this show which ends its run on January 28th. To learn more about the show and to purchase tickets just go HERE.
Oh and did I mention that a dollar from every ticket purchased goes to the ASPCA? All the more reason to get a ticket and go.
