John Drew Theater Lab (JDTLab), a workshop devoted to fostering East End performing artists, returns for the fall season! CHICKEN-FRIED CICCONE: A One-Man Musical by J. Stephen Brantley was nominated for two New York Innovative Theatre Awards – Outstanding Solo Performance and Outstanding Original Short Script! Armed with an acoustic guitar, actor-playwright Brantley reveals how he got from junkie to functional with a little help from the queen of reinvention. Chicken-Fried Ciccone is one man’s journey to heroin and back, set to countrified covers of new and classic Madge. Obie-winning master of the one-man-show David Drake directs this funny and poignant quasi-cabaret about recovery and reconnection.
