Vinsantos DeFonte presents a preview of his one man-ish show directed by Dennis Monn. This work is inspired by DeFonte’s affection for and obsession with Tennessee Williams’ famed character Nightingale from Vieux Carre. Part play, part musical, Nightingale tells the tale of a struggling artist with delusions of grandeur, a character study of who they might have been before moving into a French Quarter flophouse. A workshop view of the piece will be followed by a moderated discussion with DeFonte, Monn, and the curator of the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theatre Festival, David Kaplan. The venue is an intimate courtyard on the edge of the historic French Quarter, just steps away from Tennessee Williams’ final New Orleans residence.
