Joseph Gallo's 'Long Gone Daddy' opens tonight at Mile Square



Mile Square Theatre, Hudson County’s leading professional theatre, is proud to present the second production of its 2016 season – the world premiere of LONG GONE DADDY, written and performed by MST’s playwright-in-residence Joseph Gallo (photo). Directed by MST artistic director Chris O’Connor, performances begin July 20 and run through August 7 in the company’s new venue, located at 1400 Clinton Street in Hoboken.

LONG GONE DADDY is the follow-up to Gallo’s critically acclaimed Off-Broadway solo play My Italy Story (“…a compelling page turner.”— New York Times). Checking-in with his alter-ego, Thomas DaGato – LONG GONE DADDY chronicles the comic misadventures of becoming a stay-at-home father. From Bruce Springsteen concerts to OBGYN appointments to the Hoboken playgrounds and back again, Gallo’s semi-autobiographical play also wrestles with the memory of his own Dad, a former fireman, and the existential question, “When does a father earn the right to be called Dad?”

LONG GONE DADDY runs July 20-August 7, Thursday through Saturdays @ 8pm, Sundays @ 3pm, with a preview performance on Wednesday, July 20 @ 8pm.

Tickets: $20
