Add to Calendar 28-10-2012 16-12-2012 15 The Nod In THE NOD: Tony dealt with the hardships life threw at him with a simple accepting nod. A nod that said "everything's gonna be alright." Even if it wasn't or wouldn't be. Nodding was his way of coping -- coping with the kinds of fears universally shared. As a kid, the nod was a strategy to deal with his ‘crazy mama's’ seductive ways. As a grownup, he nodded to bluff his way in and out of lucrative writing gigs; nodded, as he would veer towards then away from the not quite available woman he loved. Over and over with self-effacing candor and deceit, he pretended to hold it all together, even as he felt it slipping from his grasp. Consumed by mortifying panic, suffocating breathe, and an epic aversion to the feelings he most feared and desired -- intolerable life affirming feelings like joy, serenity, fulfillment -- Tony started springing leaks not even Hans Brinker could plug. With little or no help from family or friends, doctors or shamans, therapists or gurus, he squandered his Hollywood wealth -- emptied his pockets, shelved his career. What happened then? He stumbled upon personal fortune. And now Tony sifts thru, picks up, and rearranges the pieces in this hilariously painful solo-performance at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. THE NOD plays the following schedule: Sunday, October 28th, 2012 3pm Tuesday, October 30th, 2012 7pm Sunday, November 4th, 2012 3pm Tuesday, November 6th, 2012 7pm Wednesday, November 7th, 2012 7pm Saturday, November 10th, 2012 7pm Sunday, November 11th, 2012 3pm Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 7pm Saturday, November 24th, 2012 7pm Sunday, November 25th, 2012 3pm Tuesday, November 27th, 2012 7pm Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 7pm Saturday, December 1st, 2012 7pm Sunday, December 2nd, 2012 3pm Tuesday, December 4th, 2012 7pm Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 7pm Saturday, December 8th, 2012 7pm Sunday, December 9th, 2012 3pm Tuesday, December 11th, 2012 7pm Wednesday, December 12th, 2012 7pm Sunday, December 16th, 2012 3pm Tickets are $23; $18 for students/seniors and are now available online at www.nuyorican.org or by calling 212-780-9386.
