Return to the Caffe Cino written by George Birimisa

 

Return to the Caffe Cino written by George Birimisa

Overview:

Winner of the 2007 Lambda Literary Foundation Book Award (LAMMY) for drama. A collection of over twenty off-off-Broadway plays originally produced at the legendary Greenwich Village coffeehouse during the 1960s, where off-off Broadway theatre was born. In place of a traditional introduction, readers will find memoir-style essays by such pioneers as Edward Albee, Robert Patrick and Phoebe Wray, plus over fifty archival photographs.

Synopsis:

Joe Cino opened his coffeehouse in Greenwich Village in 1958. The theatre world was outraged by the audacity and inspired by the originality of the work performed, between raids by the police (for the place had no theatre license), on Joe's eight-by-eight-foot stage. In 1968, a year after Joe died, Broadway's first rock musical, Hair, premiered, directed by a Caffe Cino pioneer. Joe Cino had sparked a revolution. This collection includes two dozen plays introduced at the Cino, memoirs of off-off-Broadway legends, and historic reviews and photographs.
