Alexander Dinelaris’ Red Dog Howls will begin performances September 5, one day later than the previously announced start date. Starring Tony winner Kathleen Chalfant and directed by Ken Rus Schmoll, Red Dog Howls will officially open on September 24 at off-Broadway's New York Theatre Workshop. The cast also features Alfred Narciso and Florencia Lozano.
In Red Dog Howls, a box of old letters and a father’s dying wish lead Michael Kiriakos to uncover the buried secrets of his family history. As Michael gets to know Rose, an elderly Armenian woman, Michael discovers a past he never knew existed. Red Dog Howls explores the horrors of a forgotten genocide, the enduring strength of the human spirit and how the choices we make for our children, for better or worse, will reverberate for generations to come.
