LONE STAR  | Open: 06/06/19 Close: 06/16/19
The acclaimed revival of James McLure’s comedy LONE STAR is back by popular demand at the 13th Street Repertory Theater. The play, which received audience and critical acclaim from its 2017 production, highlights rising star Matt de Rogatis as the lead and features the all female band The Chalks with Broadway actor Leenya Rideout. LONE STAR is directed by Joe John Battista. Reprising their roles and joining Matt de Rogatis as Roy are Chris Loupos as Ray and Michael Villastrigo as Cletis. The club muscle is played by Tony Del Bono and John Constantine is featured in the cast. The Chalks are Mary Brienza, Kathryn Markey, and Leenya Rideout. The production will play eight performances only from Thursday, June 6th through Sunday, June 16th at the 13th Street Repertory Theater (50 W 13th St- between Fifth and Sixth Avenues). Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at lonestarplay.com

LONE STAR transforms the theater into a rowdy Texas bar in the early 70’s with many surprises. This production marks the second NYC revival since Powers Boothe originated the role of Roy on Broadway in 1979. With a new concept from past productions, LONE STAR  features a performance by The Chalks inside a Texas roadhouse saloon in 1972. In the cluttered back of the bar, the play takes a turn and deals with a man who returns home after a tour of duty in Vietnam and bonds with his brother by reminiscing the past the present and the future.

Run time is 2 hours 15 minutes with one intermission.

About the Company: Dysfunctional Theatre Company

Fun! Booze! Zombies! (And occasionally poetry)

Dysfunctional Theatre Company - an Off-Off Broadway theater company


Dysfunctional shows audiences the joys of live theater, gives exposure to new playwrights, rediscovers forgotten scripts from previous centuries, and provides a supportive environment for artists to grow and expand their work.  Founded in 1997, THE DYSFUNCTIONAL THEATRE COMPANY is a collective dedicated to producing ensemble works that challenge the status quo without taking themselves too seriously.

Sick and tired of the constant war in their country, Lysistrata and the women of Greece devise a sneaky, subversive plot: a sex-strike only to end upon the signing of a peace treaty. But during their protest, they are challenged by hot and heavy resistance. Can they abstain in the name of peace?
