Dennis the Play

Directed by Aaron Salazar (featured in NY Times, Daily News, New York Post, Time Out NY and Wall Street Journal) and starring Patrick Boyd (Gypsy, The Producers, Grease!) with original music by Manuel Pelayo and Giancarlo Bonfanti, this contemporary story about finding connection through self-discovery will play Theatre 54 at Shetler Studios & Theatres (244 West 54th Street), for a limited engagement from March 26 through April 5. Tickets are $35. To purchase tickets and for more information, visit: Dennistheplay.com Dennis explores love, legacy, and mortality when they collide in an intimate portrait of a forgotten generation. Award winning director Aaron Salazar’s (recently featured in the The New York Times,) stripped down production fuses an original score, movement, and heightened lighting design in this heartfelt examination of what it means to face a life-altering event while navigating one’s way through the human condition and searching for true connection.
Joining Patrick Boyd in the title role are Spencer Aste (Axis Company’s Seven in One Blow, Blacklist -NBC); Bonnie Black (Brighton Beach Memoirs & Broadway Bound at the Old Globe, Mr. Robot-USA) and Max Meyers (Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, Lolita My Love).
