In My Corner
Speaker(s): Joe Orrach
In My Corner. Performer Joe Orrach -- versatile actor, tap sensation, and former USAF welterweight boxing champ -- embodies four dynamic and passionate characters in an emotionally charged story. Accompanied by his jazz trio and a lively original score by jazz pianist Matt Clark, Joe blends the rhythms of tap, boxing, salsa and rock ‘n roll into an energetic and intimate narrative. The original play written by Lizbeth Hasse and Orrach, and directed by Jeremiah Chechik (Benny and Joon, Diabolique) is a father-son story of a street-smart, wise guy Puerto Rican–Italian kid from the Bronx who comes of age in the ring and on the dance floor.
Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC tweeted: @Lawrence If you love the Bronx or boxing or ballet or tap dancing or rice and beans, you’ll love IN MY CORNER.
