Israel Horovitz' Line

For the last couple of weeks, I've been playing the role of Dolan in Israel Horovitz' Line, the longest Off-Off-Broadway in New York City.

The show is staged every Friday and Saturday night.  There are two different casts that cover each night.  I'm in the Friday night cast, however we covered Saturday night the past few weeks.

Here's the Goldstar New York summary of the show:

A baseball fan, a handsome young man, a middle-aged woman, her milquetoast husband and a philosopher wait in a Line - for what, it's not exactly clear -- in this classic absurdist comedy-drama by prolific playwright Israel Horovitz (Park Your Car in Harvard Yard). Their subsequent jockeying for position creates a biting satire on the American desire to get ahead at all costs. Line is New York's longest-running Off-Off-Broadway play, having taken hold of the 13th Street Repertory Theater in 1974 and running continuously ever since. It's also kicked off many a career, including that of Richard Dreyfuss, Chazz Palminteri, John Cazale and Christopher Meloni. Obie Award-winning Horovitz is not only the most-produced American playwright in French theater history, but he's also the father of Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock).
